Kaum ein Krisenherd bewegt Europaer mehr als die Palastinafrage - auch aufgrund der religiosen Bedeutung des Landes. Lofflers Darstellung beleuchtet die Geschichte der deutschen evangelischen und anglikanischen Institutionen wahrend der britischen Mandatszeit, in der der Konflikt entstand. Dabei zeigt er, dass sich Protestanten dank unterschiedlicher theologischer Konzepte pro-judisch, pro-arabisch oder vermittelnd verhalten konnten. Bedeutsam fur die Modernisierung Palastinas wurden ihre sozialen Einrichtungen, wahrend die Mission nur kleine arabisch-protestantische Gemeinden hervorbrachte.

This is the first of two archival guides to official sources which are published as an integral part of the British Documents on the End of Empire Project (BDEEP) and also as Public Record Office handbooks. They should enable those wishing to follow the record of the ending of colonial rule and empire to pursue their enquiries beyond the published record provided by the general studies in series A of BDEEP and the country studies in series B. In addition, this volume has a much wider application to studies of empire. A revised and updated version of The Records of the Colonial and Dominions Offices (by R.B. Pugh, published in 1964), it describes the administrative arrangements for handling Britain's relations with its dependent territories, and the records created by those processes, from the late 17th century until 1968 when the Commonwealth Office merged with the Foreign Office to become the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
