This book provides the results of research conducted with members of the Israeli-Palestinian peace movement Combatants for Peace. This organization was formed in 2005 through the unlikely partnering of Palestinians who had formerly participated in violent resistance and Israelis who had once served as soldiers in the IDF but now refuse to serve in the occupied territories. These individuals have committed themselves to work together through nonviolent action for a peaceful two-state solution. Their stories offer an inspiring message of peace and hope. The book provides recommendations for transformative peace building based on the research results.

Gershon Baskin's memoir of thirty-eight years of intensive pursuit of peace begins with a childhood on Long Island and a bar mitzvah trip to Israel with his family. Baskin joined Young Judaea back in the States, then later lived on a kibbutz in Israel, where he announced to his parents that he had decided to make aliya, emigrate to Israel. They persuaded him to return to study at NYU, after which he finally emigrated under the auspices of Interns for Peace. In Israel he spent a pivotal two years living with Arabs in the village of Kufr Qara. Despite the atmosphere of fear, Baskin found he could talk with both Jews and Palestinians, and that very few others were engaged in efforts at mutual understanding. At his initiative, the Ministry of Education and the office of right-wing prime minister Menachem Begin created the Institute for Education for Jewish-Arab Coexistence with Baskin himself as director. Eight years later he founded and codirected the only joint Israeli-Palestinian public policy think-and-do tank in the world, the Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information. For decades he continued to cross borders, often with a kaffiyeh (Arab headdress) on his dashboard to protect his car in Palestinian neighborhoods. Airport passport control became Kafkaesque as Israeli agents routinely identified him as a security threat. During the many cycles of peace negotiations, Baskin has served both as an outside agitator for peace and as an advisor on the inside of secret talks—for example, during the prime ministership of Yitzhak Rabin and during the initiative led by Secretary of State John Kerry. Baskin ends the book with his own proposal, which includes establishing a peace education program and cabinet-level Ministries of Peace in both countries, in order to foster a culture of peace.

In The Case for Peace, Dershowitz identifies twelve geopolitical barriers to peace between Israel and Palestine–and explains how to move around them and push the process forward. From the division of Jerusalem and Israeli counterterrorism measures to the security fence and the Iranian nuclear threat, his analyses are clear-headed, well-argued, and sure to be controversial. According to Dershowitz, achieving a lasting peace will require more than tough-minded negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians. In academia, Europe, the UN, and the Arab world, Israel-bashing and anti-Semitism have reached new heights, despite the recent Israeli-Palestinian movement toward peace. Surveying this outpouring of vilification, Dershowitz deconstructs the smear tactics used by Israel-haters and shows how this kind of anti-Israel McCarthyism is aimed at scuttling any real chance of peace.

As a teenager in Palestine, Sami al Jundi had one ambition: overthrowing Israeli occupation. With two friends, he began to build a bomb to use against the police. But when it exploded prematurely, killing one of his friends, al Jundi was caught and sentenced to ten years in prison. It was in an Israeli jail that his unlikely transformation began. Al Jundi was welcomed into a highly organized, democratic community of political prisoners who required that members of their cell read, engage in political discourse on topics ranging from global revolutions to the precepts of nonviolent protest and revolution. Al Jundi left prison still determined to fight for his people, s rights - but with a very different notion of how to undertake that struggle. He cofounded the Middle East program of Seeds of Peace Center for Coexistence, which brings together Palestinian and Israeli youth. Marked by honesty and compassion for Palestinians and Israelis alike, The Hour of Sunlight illuminates the Palestinian experience through the story of one man, s struggle for peace.

This is the first book in non-Arabic language on Palestinian drama and theatre. The book outlines the historical development of Palestinian dramatic activities from their hesitant rise before 1948 and the first theatrical attempts to the heavy blow which these attempts suffered as a result of the establishment of the State of Israel, to the regeneration of professional theatre out of the ashes of the 1967 defeat, through to the activities of the 1970s and the role they played in Palestinian nation-building. It provides a glimpse into the nature of the current Palestinian theatrical movement, the artistic framework within which it developed, its main themes and poetic traits as well as its major sources of influence. The study is essentially an historical one, but the methodology is combined with literary and dramatic perspectives and insights. Emphasis is placed on the historical development of practical theatrical activities and the rise of dramatic literature, with special attention given to the institutions in which those activities took place. An attempt has been made to present in some detail several of the most important dramatic works in the various historical phases. In addition to an analysis of the written texts, the discussion of the plays also refers to the relevant details of their practical staging. The study includes in-depth investigation of the activities of two major professional Palestinian troupes: the al-Balalin and al-Hakawati, due to the vital effect these troupes have had on the professionaliztion of Palestinian theatre. The primary audience of the book are scholars and students of Arabic culture and literature, as well as scholars and students of theatre and Palestinian nationalism. The book will also be of interest to intellectuals interested in Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
