“These three wide-ranging, highly readable, and extremely well-informed volumes are a real gem that should be read by every politically- and historically minded seeker of truth, justice, and enduring peace in historical Palestine.” Journal of Palestine Studies (JPS 165), 2012
“In this extraordinary book, Alan Hart has succeeded in elucidating for us the immediate and long-term dangers involved in the unconditional Western support for Zionism and its oppressive policies against the Palestinians. The author provides us with a chilling exposure of how this embrace developed and continues to endanger the Jewish existence and fuels the anti-Semitism that refuses to disappear. Motivated by a genuine concern for peace in Israel and Palestine and beyond in the world at large, Alan Hart has written not only a strong indictment of Zionism, based on both research and personal experience, but also provided us with a charter for a better future.” ILAN PAPPE, Leading Israeli revisionist historian, author of The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine
ALAN HART (deceased 2017) was a former ITN and BBC Panorama foreign correspondent with a vast first-hand knowledge of the conflict in and over Palestine that became Israel. His first book Arafat, Terrorist or Peacemaker? was published by Sidgwick & Jackson in 1984 and subsequently in several updated editions over a decade, in America by Indiana University Press as ARAFAT. In the early 1970s, his independent production company produced the first ever and to date only documentary on the true dimensions of global poverty and its implications for all. The film, Five Minutes To Midnight, had its world premiere at the opening of the 7th Special Session of the UN General Assembly (called to discuss the need for a New World Economic Order), was shown on television in many Western countries, was versioned for schools and became a standard work of reference. For that effort Alan was credited with having played a leading role in getting the North-South issue on to the agenda for political and public debate.
