Irit Amit-Cohen explores the riddle behind disappearing citrus orchards
and plantations from Israel’s coastal scenery. The book reveals the
biographies of entrepreneurs who came to Palestine in the 1920s and
1930s. Exposing the uniqueness of the plantation companies, describing
the figures involved in them and analyzing their contribution to forming
Palestine’s settlement landscape in the British Mandate period, this
book relates the intimate narrative of settlements which were built as
temporary structures, but still leave lasting imprints on the landscape..
