Geoffrey Lewis has chosen to focus only on the part played by the two principal architects of the declaration . The first meeting between Balfour and Weizmann took place in 1906, three years after the Zionist leadership had turned down the offer of a Jewish homeland in Uganda.

Geoffrey Lewis has chosen to focus only on the part played by the two principal architects of the declaration: Arthur Balfour and Chaim Weizmann, the Gentile Zionist and the ardent Jewish nationalist. The result is a perceptive, elegantly written and fair-minded book. At first sight, Balfour seems an unlikely candidate for the role of mover and shaker. Their conversation lasted more than an hour and contained within it the germ of the Balfour Declaration.

In the short epilogue, Balfour and Chaim Weizmann. Throughout the book, Lewis gives a lively and compelling description of how Weizmann created a network that gave him the chance to meet all the great political personalities in Britain and how he became an influential actor among British politicians and media. According to Lewis, the germ of the Balfour Declaration is to be found in the first meeting between Balfour and Weiz- mann in 1906. Weizmann successfully explained to Balfour that Zionists could not accept a home just anywhere. Weizmann said: ‘Mr Balfour, supposing I were to offer you Paris instead of London, would you take it?’

From the publisher: On November 2, 1917, Arthur Balfour, then Foreign Secretary, wrote to Lord Rothschild to say that the British Government viewed with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people. At the centre of Geoffrey Lewis’s compelling book is the story of this encounter and the developing relationship between these two men: the Zionist and the Zealot, so different from each other, yet drawn together by forces that neither quite understood, with consequences that were to have a profound effect on the modern world.

On November 2, 1917, Arthur Balfour, then Foreign Secretary, wrote to Lord Rothschild to say that the British Government viewed with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people. The consequences of this statement have reverberated throughout the world in a crescendo of bitterness and violence ever since. It interposed a European (mainly Russian) Jewish cultural idea in an Arab land and it led eventually to the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Eleven years before his declaration, Balfour had met the passionate Zionist and émigré chemist Chaim Weizmann while electioneering in Manchester. At the centre of Geoffrey Lewis's compelling book is the story of this encounter and the developing relationship between these two men: the Zionist and the Zealot, so different from each other, yet drawn together by forces that neither quite understood, with consequences that were to have a profound effect on the modern world.
