A Personal Account of Anglo-American Diplomacy in Palestine and the Middle East.

In 1946, the US government requested that 100,000 Jewish refugees be admitted immediately to Palestine from the DP camps. The British government resisted and at last set up a committee to investigate and recommend a decision. The British thought it almost impossible that the group would unanimously vote for letting them go – which in turn happened. This book is the personal account of one of the members appointed to that committee, following him from DP camps in Europe, to Cairo, and then to Jewish and Arab cities in Palestine during 1946.
