Summary

"This book reveals the story of the involvement of the Australian statesman, Dr. H. V. Evatt, in the United Nations' decision to partition Palestine, a decision that paved the way for the establishment of Israel six months later. It unravels the complex interplay of motives and pressures in the shadow of an emerging Cold War that resulted in Evatt's pivotal role at a decisive moment that changed the face of the modern Middle East."--BOOK JACKET.
