Reviews

"Peace-building in Israel and Palestine is an extraordinary book - at once realistic, challenging and inspiring. Chaitin has done us all - Israelis, Palestinians, and the rest of us - a great service in writing a terrific book, grounded in solid research and brimming with practical ideas about what can be done to make peace between Israelis and Palestinians. But, will Israeli and Palestinian leaders engage in the difficult work of peace-building? I hope so." - Carol Rittner, RSM, Distinguished Professor of Holocaust & Genocide

Studies and the Dr. Marsha Raticoff Grossman Professor of Holocaust Studies, The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey

"This accessible and insightful book is attentive to interpersonal, intergroup, and socio-political aspects of Arab-Jewish / Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Grounded in experience, it speaks to the painstaking work of co-creating a just and sustainable peace. Its lively narrative speaks candidly about setbacks and breakthroughs of peace building within a conflictual context. Activists, practitioners, scholars, and students will find this process-oriented book inspiring and helpful in its careful descriptions of the creative and collaborative grassroots work designed to nurture peace." - Susan Opotow, Professor, John Jay College of Criminal Justice and the Graduate Center, City University of New York
