Working from both primary and secondary sources, Walter Reid explores Britain's role in the creation of the modern Middle East and the rise of Zionism from the early years of the 20th century to 1948, when Britain handed over Palestine to UN control. This is the first major assessment of Britain's role in the Middle East where the consequences of British involvement in the region can still be felt today. At the end of the First World War Britain and to a much lesser extent France created the modern Middle East. The possessions of the former Ottoman Empire were carved up with scant regard for the wishes of those who lived there. Britain was quick to see the riches promised by the black pools of oil that lay on the ground around Baghdad. Conflicting and ambiguous promises had been made to the Arabs during the war but were not honored. Brief hopes for Arab unity were dashed, and a harsh belief in Western perfidy persists to the present day. This study seeks to answer how much Britain is to blame for the instability of the region and of the world-wide tensions that threaten the 21st century.
