Includes various tables. “The reader is warned at the outset not to mistake such an attempt as either a ‘blueprint’, or a ‘forecast’ of what is likely to happen. As these lines are written (beginning of 1946) , the political and economic future of the country is no less uncertain than it was in 1942, when the work was taken in hand. But then, as now, the investigation is justified, in the author’s opinion, just because no mere prophesy has any practical value. Its task is to show what might be done in Palestine and in this way to establish the reasonableness of the Zionist claims for conditions under which the realisation of their aims can be achieved. It is intended to help towards the creation of preconditions favourable to our cause, and is, in so far, not dependent upon the actual situation at present or in future. ” SUBJECT(S) : Economic policy, Palestine. Minimal edgewear and staining. Slight toning. Very good condition. (ZION-12-70).
