In recent decades, an increasing number of works have been dedicated to the British legal system in Palestine during the Mandate and its legacy upon the emerging Israeli state. With the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza following the war of 1967, works have addressed the controversial role played by Israeli police in occupied Palestinian territories. A number of works have addressed the legal systems imposed on Palestinians, while others have used legal sources – including court records – to write social histories of Palestine and the Palestinians.

I would like to announce that my book, Islam under the Palestine Mandate: Colonialism and the Supreme Muslim Council (London: I.B. Tauris, 2017), is now available in North America. The book should be of interest to anyone who studies the British mandate period, Islamic and nationalist politics in Israel/Palestine, and the treatment of Islam under colonial rule.
I am writing to share with the H-Mideast community an opportunity for publishing original articles, commentaries, review essays, and book reviews.

I am deeply concerned about the posting of this article from David Horowitz’s Frontpage Mag on the Holocaust and antisemitism lists of H-Net without accompanying contextualization. In the US, Horowitz is widely regarded as a purveyor of hate speech and a funder of extremists; see for example the Southern Poverty Law Center’s documentation.
