An academic book with notes, extended bibliography, and many citations within the text. Yet very readable. I was surprised to find such a scholarly book in the public library system. Peters has researched mountains of papers and books, government documents, and other primary sources to form her findings to her question about which group of people....the Jews or the Arabs...had lived from time immemorial in the Palestine area. She uses her findings to refute the propaganda claims of the Arabs. Thus I found her background of the Arabians enlightening as often this history is neglected in school history classes. Further, I found her assessment quite revealing about the role that the British played in the Palestine area between the wars in delaying the immigration of the European Jewish peoples, thus enabling Hitler his holocaust and denying these Jewish people a place to live. Peters also has a negative view about the Arabs who refused to help their Arab refugees after 1948 to re-locate to other Arabian countries and who preferred to use these refugees as a pawn in their continuing land dispute with Israel. Peters book should be read for an understanding of the background behind the Arab-Israeli conflict and to see what the Arabs want as a solution to this conflict.
