The High Walls of Jerusalem is a fantastic, detailed, account of the developments of two generations leading to the Balfour Declaration of 1917. Sanders pored through literally thousands of official, primary-source documents of the periods. For those looking for an understanding of how modern Israel came to be, along with the issues surrounding modern-day Middle Eastern problems, this book is indispensable.
“Sanders has a good eye for detail. He has also dug deeply into the archives.” —NYTBR
