The final report of the Peel Commission and one of the key publications in the history of Palestine, this document brought the concept of partition (the division of Palestine into Arab and Jewish states) to the forefront of discussions on the fate of the region. In his History of Zionism, Walter Laqueur describes the Palestine Royal Commission as "the most high-powered of the various commissions of enquiry which had visited Palestine" and the report as "a model of insight, precision, and lucidity."
