Documents of volume I cover most of the British mandate period that resulted from the First World War. It is evident that the chosen documents discuss mostly the diplomatic or political aspects of the case’s developments regardless of the military or warfare aspects. The convenience of publishing these documents seems to augment with the intriguing intersection between the dates of publishing these documents and the annual anniversary – within the next three or four years – of some of these dates or events documented, such as: the 100th anniversary of Hussein-McMahon Correspondence (1916-2016), the 100th anniversary of Sykes-Picot Agreement (1916-2016), the Balfour Declaration (1917-2017), the 70th anniversary of the United Nations Partition Plan for Palestine (1947-2017), and the 70th anniversary of the 1948 war (1948-2018).
