Leonard Woolf’s long life and life-long involvement with international politics, law, and economics created a body of work that serves as a lens through which we can better understand virtually every major historical event and movement of the twentieth century. His willingness to take on controversial issues, to build policy arguments and express unequivocal convictions, and then to revisit and reassess these arguments and convictions as times and circumstances change, can still help us comprehend current events and controversies. The evolution of Leonard Woolf’s thoughts on Palestine, Zionism, and the State of Israel can help us navigate this international, national, and educational controversy in a broader historical context, and can increase our appreciation for the ways Woolf’s essays, letters, Labour Party white papers, and his autobiography helped to “write the world.” This essay examines Woolf’s evolving views from three vantage points: 1922, 1949, and 1968.

Keywords:   Leonard Woolf, International politics, Palestine, Zionism, Israel, Labour Party, Twentieth century history
