Abstract

My thesis looks at the history of Mandate Palestine (1917-1948) through an environmental history lens. The main question is in which ways changes in the landscape influenced the power relations between the British, the Jewish and the Arab communities. This is explored by looking at forestry, the Dead Sea development, beekeeping and gardens. I conclude that landscape can manifest and transfer power and is thus an important factor to be included in studies of, for example, Palestine-Israel.
