Documentary Importance

Thanks to extensive research the editor has been able to assemble a comprehensive collection of documents from the records of the Foreign Office and the Colonial Office at the Public Record Office, London. Here now in facsimile are the authentic period documents, most in English or translated into English, some in Arabic or French, recording the origins, the creation, the aims and the development of the Arab League. The collection includes two different types of papers, most significantly records generated by Arab League officials, in the form of communiqués, agendas and minutes of meetings, resolutions, correspondence, reports and treaties. The second category covers internal British government reports and briefings from British Ambassadors and political officers in the field.

In the absence of a substantial historical collection of Arabic archives this publication becomes the most important and useful research source for background reference on the key formative years of the Arab League.
