Review quote

'Explores the stories of men and women who create glimmers of light and hope in the dark despair surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This is a vital intervention for all who care about peace and justice' -- Neve Gordon, author of Israel's Occupation. 'A book like a pocket lamp that contests darkness: the darkness fabricated by those who have promoted a global blindness concerning what has happened in Palestine and Israel during the last sixty years. The battery of this remarkable lamp is true observation, and with it you discover exemplary courage in the most unexpected places. Pocket it!' -- John Berger, author of From A to X, a novel inspired by the people of Palestine
