Synopsis

Drawn to the Promised Land charts the dramatic history of Palestine from the Balfour Declaration to the creation of the state of Israel. Through the acerbic wit of leading political cartoonists from Britain, the United States and other countries, we see how Britain's policies changed repeatedly after it captured Palestine from the Ottomans in 1917. From the Arab riots through to the Nazi persecution of European Jews and the unspeakable horrors of the Holocaust, cartoonists captured every painful twist and agonising turn of events. The first book of cartoons to be published on this contentious subject, Drawn to the Promised Land offers a truly unique visual insight into a period of history that still reverberates to this day.
