Three Contemporary Jewish Readings of the Balfour Declaration

Three Contemporary Jewish Readings of the Balfour Declaration

Dr Brian Klug has recently published a number of articles including, 'Zionism, Binationalism, Anti-Semitism: Three Contemporary Jewish Readings of the Balfour Declaration'.

The Balfour Declaration, a letter from the British foreign secretary to Lord Rothschild dated November 2, 1917 had a mixed reception in Jewish circles in Britain and beyond. Dr Klug's article focuses on the attitudes expressed in three texts that were more or less contemporary with the Declaration, all of them written by prominent Jews who were either British or temporarily residing in Britain at the time.
