Editorial Reviews

Review

"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 Ways of Seeing and About Looking


“Riordon’s portraits reveal what it means to be a courageous person, a seeker of truth. This is a vital intervention for all who care about peace and justice.” --Neve Gordon, author of Israel's Occupation


"Riordon offers an important corrective to the standard tale of an intractable conflict." --Publishers Weekly, starred review


"An important asset for those with advanced knowledge of Israel's apartheid. It adds clarity and most importantly--humanity--to such a complex situation in which the repressors portray themselves and even see themselves as the victims, that is valuable for even the most experienced activist." --Shir Hever, author of The Political Economy of Israel's Occupation


"Sensitive interviewing and careful attention to detail." —IllumeMagazine.com

Format: Paperback
If you want to get on the ground and talk to people working for peace in Israel-Palestine then read Michael Riordon's new book, Our Way to Fight. Riordon takes you on a field trip revealing the wide spectrum of initiatives undertaken by Israelis and Palestinians, against great odds and at risk to their own lives, to resist the occupation and eventually to end it. I like the intimacy of his interviews with regular people who explain their motivation to get involved in what seems like an insurmountable challenge. Riordon also conveniently provides background coverage on historical events associated with the formation of the State of Israel and the Occupation. I found the most hopeful aspect of this book to be the number of Jewish Israeli citizens quoted to have realized the fallacy of their own government's policies and who have consequently taken action. If you find the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict disheartening, then read this book for while Riordon does not minimize the immense challenge of attaining peace, the people you'll meet in his book demonstrate the astounding resilience of both Israelis and Palestinians, which should inspire any reader to try to affect change.
