From Coexistence to Conquest: International Law and the Origins of the Arab-Israeli Conflict 1891-1949
"Differing historical narratives and competing legal claims have characterized the Palestinian issue for over a hundred years. Victor Kattan gives them new meaning in his excellent study, which contains much new historical material and many new legal insights. His portrayal of issues such as the Balfour Declaration, the establishment and operation of the Mandate, the Partition proposal, the expulsion of Palestinians from their homes in 1948-9 and the consequent refugee crisis serves to remind us of how international law has failed the Palestinians. At the same time it is a warning that a settlement of the Palestinian issue not premised on international law is doomed to fail".
John Dugard, Professor of Public International Law Emeritus, Leiden University and UN Special Rapporteur to the Occupied Palestinian Territories 2000-2008
"No conflict in modern history has presented so many legal issues, which presumably could have been solved applying international law. This book highlights a number of these issues as they relate to the establishment of the State of Israel. The author's style is crisp and direct, making it easy for the reader to follow complex legal issues".
M. Cherif Bassiouni, Distinguished Research Professor of Law at DePaul University College of Law and President Emeritus of the International Human Rights Law Institute
