About this title

Synopsis:

Although Israel was not the only country that emerged during the postcolonial era following World War II, it was very different than others in the British Empire such as India, Iraq, Egypt, Kenya, and Nigeria. In A State Is Born, Jonathan David Fine uses newly discovered archival materials to reveal the complex challenges Israeli decision makers faced during the transition from British colonial rule in Palestine to Israeli sovereignty in the newly founded State of Israel. Including discussions of topics such as the Va'adat HaMatzav (special Committee for the transition period) and the formation of the ministries of Interior and Labor, Fine focuses on the planning policy and implementation behind the establishment of the Israeli governmental system during its most crucial formative period, 1947-1951, a dramatic transitory phase for both Jews and Arabs that continues to reverberate to this day.

About the Author:

Jonathan David Fine (1958-2015) was Senior Researcher at the International Institute for Counter Terrorism (ICT) and Assistant Professor at IDC Herzlyia's Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy, and Strategy in Israel. He is the author of Political Violence in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam: From Holy War to Modern Terror.
