Abstract

The British gradually brought the eye of the state to the ground level: from an aerial perspective, they moved to a watchtower perspective, then to a street view, before “scuttling” out of Palestine. At the same time, in three stages tied to the colonial development of Palestine, the British state reformed its relationship with the local population. Above all, this thesis is an “administrative history” about how “high political” decisions were arrived at, implemented, and changed in the British Mandate in Palestine by administrators of the Empire.
