Editorial Reviews


"An anthology of the efforts of both countries to build peace."


Library Journal

"Frustrated that the goal of peace between Israelis and Palestinians remains thwarted in political channels, Kuriansky writes that she is however heartened by progress between Israeli Jewish and Palestinian civilians working together in grassroots projects. She presents 40 chapters, written by academics and practitioners, that profile some positive examples of such projects, which range from educational endeavors and cultural activities to academic and public forums, art and filmmaking, interfaith events, dialogue and encounter groups, research and just fun."


Reference & Research Book News

"Kuriansky, an American clinical psychologist interested in the pscyho-social issues of the conflict, has gathered an impressive survey of these initiatives in the form of articles by Palestinian and Israeli Jewish academics, medical professionals, encounter group facilitators, and students. The writers discuss the ways communication skills, educational materials, dialogue, cooperative camps, and art projects….are used for peacebuilding. This is a title that will be of much use to those interested in inter-group dynamics and dialogue, in terms of borh the Mideast conflict and other inter-groups as well."


MultiCultural Review

"[Kuriansky] draws on her experience as a journalist and peace activist and is to be congratulated for putting together this first-of-its-kind book, which describes people-to-people projects aimed at fostering mutual understanding, cooperation, and coexistence between Israelis and Palestinians […] This book is highly recommended for students involved in Mideast and international studies and in clinical, community, and social psychology and peace education, as well as for peace activists and psychologists who work internationally […] This book provides a hard look at the couraegous and difficult work by Israelis and Palestinians on both sides of the conflict who are creatively trying to move beyond fear, hate, and political impasse."




"With Beyond Bullets and Bombs Dr. Kuriansky has assembled an exemplary collection of accounts of Israeli and Palestinian peacemakers in action. These diverse stories of promise and possibility should be read by all concerned with the seemingly ceaseless violence of the region as these acts of courage, strength, and faith reveal that peace can and will come from the people and that the intractable conflict of Israel-Palestine is not as intractable as it seems." (Tony Jenkins, Co-Director, Peace Education Center, Teachers College, Columbia University)

Format: Hardcover
Thanks to Judith the world has the recorded actions in this volume speaking louder than words. These stories bring further light to words spoken so nobly before:

"I like to believe that people, in the long run, are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it."


This book speaks loudly to all those dedicated to peace.
