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.

Editorial Reviews

"A lasting two-state peace between Israel and Palestine will not come from more top-down 'peace processes.' Desperately needed are efforts by both peoples together to transform a deeply entrenched culture of conflict into a popular culture of peace. Only such grassroots efforts can overcome the traumatization of both societies and oblige their leaders to make peace. This is the message in Donna Perry's fine book, documented by the words of Israeli and Palestinian participants. The transcendent moral courage, humanity and integrity of these former enemies offer hope that reconciliation and peace are possible." - Philip C. Wilcox, Jr., former U.S. consul general, Jerusalem and president, Foundation for Middle East Peace
