The Influence of the Palestine Crisis on British Politics 1945 to 1950
MetadataShow full item record
I interpreted Bevin's apologists as viewing his role in the perspective of time, spacial and chronological. Spacial is the general post-war climate with interacting pressures. The chronological are those immediate contingent events which precipitate crisis. After this paper was completed, several questions remained to be studied: what was the opposition to Ernest Bevin within Britain; was it contained within the traditional limits of British politics or did it become an effective threat to the Foreign Secretary; what were the issues to which this opposition objected? This paper studies and answers these questions to provide the student with a clearer understanding of the forces within the Palestine issue. The research was done in London at the libraries of the London School of Economics and the Labour party.
