Abstract

This chapter opens with a brief overview of the life of the Irish Franciscan Eugene Hoade, whose controversial career as Palestine Police Catholic chaplain (1938–1948) coincided with a significant increase in the Irish presence in Palestine’s policing. It then outlines some of the themes addressed in this book, and continues with a discussion of these themes as explored in subsequent chapters.
