Issued in London in 1917, the Balfour Declaration was one of the key documents of the 20th century. It committed Britain to supporting the establishment in Palestine of "a National Home for the Jewish people", and its reverberations continue to be felt to this day. Now the entire fascinating story of the document is revealed in this impressive work of modern history.

If your desire is to learn complicated grammatical rules or to speak perfectly proper and precise Italian, this book is not for you. However, if you need to hold a conversation while on a trip to Italy, to impress that certain someone, or to be able to speak with your grandfather or grandmother as soon as possible, then the Nitzany Method is what you have been looking for. This method is designed for fluency in a foreign language, while communicating in the present tense.

Have you always wanted to learn how to speak Spanish but simply didn't have the time? Well, look no further. This is the most advanced and revolutionary method ever designed for quickly becoming conversational in a language. If your desire is to learn complicated grammatical rules, this book is not for you. However, if you need to actually hold a conversation while on a trip to a Spanish-speaking country or to impress that certain someone, then the Nitzany method is what you have been looking for.
