"This is a profoundly important study of the history and ongoing efforts for Israeli-Palestinian peace by ordinary Israelis and Palestinians. It is by far the most comprehensive history of this aspect of the conflict I have ever read. It offers a genuinely balanced perspective." -- Stephen Zunes, University of San Francisco, coeditor of Nonviolent Social Movements: A Geographical Perspective and author of Tinderbox: U.S. Middle East Policy and the Roots of Terrorism "Katz shows a deep undercurrent and countercurrent to the official narratives that plague the so-called peace process. She offers us a model for how countless activists have indeed learned, through circumstances and values, to think outside the tired old boxes that keep the conflicts going." -- Gordon Fellman, Brandeis University, author of Rambo and the Dalai Lama: The Compulsion to Win and Its Threat to Human Survival
