In 1947, a two-thirds majority of the members of the United Nations voted to establish an Arab and a Jewish state on what had been British Mandate Palestine. This webinar explores the causes and nature of the war of 1948 and how it is perceived as either anti-colonial or colonial, anti-racist or racist, depending on one's perspective. Join historians Benny Morris and Jeffrey Herf as they discuss these issues and their contemporary implications.
