Musa Budeiri's history of the Palestine Communist Party is the only English-language study of the heroic-and ultimately, unsuccessful-attempt to create a political alternative to Zionism in Palestine based on class solidarity of Palestinian Arabs and Jewish immigrants. Budeiri's work combines archival research with extensive interviews of those involved in the events he describes. First published in the late 1970s, Budeiri's work remains a path-breaking study that sheds light on a critically ignored aspect of the history of Palestine-and the creation of a Zionist Israeli state. With a new introduction by the author.
