The J. C. Hurewitz papers consisted originally of a collection of printed materials, much of it relating to the history of
the British mandate of Palestine. This part (boxes 1-22) includes numerous publications issued by various Zionist parties
in the period leading up to the creation of the state of Israel. The increment to the papers greatly expands the volume of
the collection, making it a significant addition to the holdings of the archives on the history and politics of the Middle
East. The incremental materials reflect Hurewitz's professional involvement with the region over a period of more than fifty
years, beginning as a U.S. government analyst and then continuing during a long and distinguished academic career as a professor
of political science at Columbia University. The increment consists of speeches and writings; a subject file of clippings,
articles, and reports; correspondence and conference materials; photocopies of documents; and printed matter.
