The third of our three lectures looking at the reasons for, reactions to and repercussions of the Balfour Declaration of a hundred years ago. David Cronin offers a trenchant critique of Britain’s dealings with Palestine, including its often brutal rule of that land between the world wars and its lasting support for the Zionist project of colonisation – an intriguing alliance, he says, with lethal consequences. His new book, Balfour’s Shadow, has been praised by Robert Fisk as ‘perhaps the most dramatic centenary account’.
