David Cronin will be appearing at Guildford Book Festival to discuss his latest book
Britain’s foreign secretary penned the Balfour Declaration in 1917, laying the foundations for the creation of Israel in historical Palestine.
In his new book Balfour’s Shadow: A Century of British Support for Zionism and Israel, journalist David Cronin analyses the motives behind British foreign policy and its consequences for both Palestine and Israel through to the present day. It is a timely reminder of Britain’s role in this ongoing conflict.
