Mae gan y Cymry ddiddordeb ers degawdau yn nhraddodiadau Palesteina ac Israel. Dyma'r gyfrol gyntaf yn y maes sy'n gofyn cwestiynau treiddgar am y berthynas rhwng Cymru ac Israel-Palesteina.

Wales has a long history of interest in Palestine and Israel, and a close interest in Jews and Zionism. This monograph, the first to explore the subject, asks searching questions about the relationship that Wales has with the Israel-Palestine situation.
Whose People? is a thorough and engaging inquiry into a fascinating subject. Donahue tackles the subject with vigour. Her search is detailed and her gaze steady. The book is like a route map through a complex and sensitive subject which (to her credit) Donahue does not avoid or oversimplify. She deftly makes connections, creating a convincing, cohesive whole.

The overriding journey is both the real and imagined connections between Wales/Welsh nation and Israel and the Jews. Donahue’s forays into Welsh literature are far reaching, a subject full of myth and minefields, and she finds some fascinating parallels and moments of synchronicity. Although this is a complex, multi-routed subject, Donahue steers one through it carefully. Forays into the past are skilfully signposted and she keeps her eye on the bigger picture as she forges her path through.

Although I have some familiarity with the rich tradition of Welsh literature, I was introduced to work I had not come across before. This book is an original insight into a fascinating topic, whilst providing a framework within which to experience a range of Welsh literature as if through a prism.

Gwybodaeth Bellach:
Surveying Welsh missionary writing, fictional imaging of Jews, and the political use of Palestine and Israel, it challenges received wisdom about Welsh tolerance and liberalism, and identifies a complex and unique relationship. Whose People? Wales, Israel, Palestine makes an important contribution to international Jewish studies, to the study of British colonial involvement in Palestine, and to Welsh and Jewish literary and cultural history.
