Synopsis

This book is a historical study of the survey and mapping system of Palestine under the British Mandate. It traces the background and the reasoning behind the establishment of the survey programme, examines the foundations upon which the system was based, and strives to understand the motivation of those who implemented it. This study shows that the roots of the modern survey system of Palestine are to be sought in the Balfour Declaration and its implications regarding land in Palestine. The land issue was at the core of the mapping of Mandatory Palestine, and it remains as a core issue at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.

Dov Gavish is Director of the Ariel Photographs Archives, and also lectures in the Department of Geography, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His previous publications include 50 Years of Mapping Israel, 1948-1999, Salt of the Earth: From the Palestine Potash to the Dead Sea Works and Land and Map: The Survey of Palestine, 1920-1948.
