The Realities of American-Palestine Relations

Excerpt

In the course of writing this history of American-Palestine relations a number of pious legends may have been destroyed and, likely as not, a few impious ones created. The author has preferred, however, not to engage in extended controversy with the originators of the legends. This obviated the necessity for scholarly polemic and the traditional substructure of footnotes.

The more pertinent sources for each chapter are indicated at the end of the book in such a manner that attempts to check specific quotations from manuscript sources will entail substantial archival search on the part of the curious. Transcription of Hebrew and Arabic names has in general followed the system devised by T. E. Lawrence. The learned will notice the absence of the diacritical mark under the het but those knowing enough to miss it can supply the lack in their mind's eye.

The staffs of the National Archives and the Library of Congress have been gracious and helpful. Dr. Lawrence Marwick, Chief of the Hebraic Section in the Library of Congress, has shared of his great knowledge beyond the call of duty, and my wife has contributed her labor to the preparation of the manuscript beyond the bounds of love.

To Robert Harvey of Public Affairs Press I am indebted for generous assistance on the index.

FRANK E. MANUEL, PH.D. Washington, D.C.
