Nombre de pages: 

An abridged study of the war of June 1967. The author develops the injustices to which the Palestinians have been exposed to, starting with the Balfour declaration of November 2, 1917. For Cattan, these are the dimensions of the problem. The injustices done to the Palestinian Arabs uprooted from their homes and the land of their ancestors by a Zionist conspiracy.
