The book examines how the response to Zionism of the various currents of the British Left evolved from 1917 up to the advent of New Labour.  From The Communist party's embrace of the Zionist cause in 1947 to the conjunction of an anti-imperialist new left and a resurgent Palestinian nationalism in the 1960s.
