Analysing the land tenure system in Palestine under the administration of the British Mandate, this book questions whether, and to what extent, the land tenure system in Palestine facilitated Zionist land acquisition.

The research uses benchmarks elaborated in the guidelines of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme as its analytical starting point, and looks at the formation and implementation of the land tenure system in Palestine.

It goes on to place the penetration of Zionism into the land tenure system within the theoretical context of a colonial-settler framework, employing information from the British Mandate land registry records hidden at the Jordanian Department of Lands, and other archives such as the Central Zionist Archives, Israeli State Archives, and British Public Records Office.
