From Haven to Conquest: Readings in Zionism and the Palestine Problem until 1948 edited by Walid Khalidi
Anthology of reprinted articles and book chapters with an introduction and appendices.
Now a classic in its field, From Haven to Conquest is a unique compendium of difficult-to-obtain or out-of-print material on Zionism and the history of Palestine from ancient times until 1948. Eighty documents and first-hand accounts are supplemented by 30 pages of appendices providing detailed demographic and military statistics. The late historian Albert Hourani called Professor Khalidi's 80-page introduction "the best description and explanation known to me of the way in which the indigenous inhabitants of the country were gradually and inexorably displaced."
