This book, originally written in Israel in Hebrew, makes extensive use of verifiable Hebrew sources. Israeli military censorship blocked its publication. In 1973, the author, now living in exile in Lebanon, rewrote and updated his book, and had it published in Arabic. This English version was made in 1976 by someone with no knowledge of Hebrew, and some Hebrew names are therefore mangled, which stands out to people who are used to Israeli sources, but must be understood, given the manner in which this book came into being.
The English version comes with an introduction by Noam Chomsky who, in 1976, sounded exactly like he sounds now, and believed a two-state solution was not only unavoidable, but imminent. This, too, is enlightening.
Having grown up in Israel and being well-read in its history, I found this book an invaluable addition to a chapter of its past that is hushed up and entirely unknown, inside Israel and outside of it.
