dc.description.abstractThe Communist Party of Great Britain (CPGB) offers an account of the Mandate of Palestine strikingly divergent from the rest of British society. Through their ideology, the CPGB constructed a narrative of Palestinian issues focused on British policy, which was identified as the imperial-capitalist activities of a scheming "British imperialism." With this ideological center, a discussion emerged that orientalized the Arab nationalist as a progressive revolutionary, differentiated between reactionary Zionist and average Jewish settler, and opposed partition as imperialism. Running throughout these themes was an optimism for Arab-Jewish unity, a conclusion shared with official British government observers. The British Communist view on the Mandate is marked out as radically Communist and distinctly British.en_US
