Here’s my “final word” on the Balfour Declaration, wrapping up a month of discussion begun by my essay on the “forgotten truth” about the pledge. In this follow-up, I show how Britain justified its retreat from the declaration, I cast doubt on the idea that Christian restorationism inspired Balfour et al., and I bring more testimonials to the diplomatic finesse of Nahum Sokolow. Let the centennial of the Balfour Declaration begin!
The Balfour Declaration Was More than the Promise of One Nation
