Book Review: Palestine in Turmoil

Palestine in Turmoil: The Struggle for Sovereignty, 1933-1939 by Monty Noam Penkower was reviewed in the Jerusalem Post Magazine. Reviewer Yisrael Medad writes:

“Penkower proves to be a historian of the first order, one who marshals hundreds of sources to present a cogent, almost weekly chronological record of six years of men’s failures and successes, their ideas, their ideals, their hatreds and their irrationalities. . . . Little escapes Penkower, even the minor instances that others have considered insignificant. . . . The author also includes certain gems that transform dry history into memorable history and echo contemporary times. . . . Palestine in Turmoil seamlessly moves from continent to continent, party to faction, person to personality, event to event, and despite the required hundreds of footnotes, it still allows the reader to follow the complicated story.”
