Just in: the latest issue of The Historian (No.97, Spring 2008), the magazine of The Historical Association (UK).
The editor, Trevor James, reviews Memories of Eden and says:
‘As a contemporary comment on how quickly circumstances in a community can change and deteriorate, this is a very interesting source. To me it is also a stark reminder, with a haunting contemporary resonance, of what happens when politicians from far away artificially create a state for reasons of international balance rather than because of the needs of the people who lived there.’
Many thanks, Mr James.
