Editorial Reviews


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

"[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." - PsycCRITIQUES

"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

"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


"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)

"Dr. Judy Kuriansky's book is very important. When things on the ground are very dark, it relays a ray of sunshine and hope for the people to be guided by: that both peoples can work together and live together side by side, for they are both the Children of Abraham." (Saida Nusseibeh, Founder of Jewish/Arab Dialogue and Education in Europe(JADE), Member of United Religions Initiative- Middle East North Africa region (URI MENA))

"Making conflict is easy, building peace is heroic. This book reflects the real heroes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict--individual human beings willing to take a stand for peace, to live it in their daily lives, to embody it in activism, and to sustain it in organizations. Judy Kuriansky has done it again, going to the core of peace building where it matters, in the hearts and minds of the courageous people actually doing the work of building peace in the Holy Land. She, and they, deserve our unreserved respect, honor, and gratitude." (Susan Collin Marks, Senior Vice President, Search for Common Ground, Author of Watching the Wind: conflict resolution during South Africa's Transition to democracy)

"Once again Judy Kuriansky has applied her vast international experience, impressive knowledge of relationships, conflict resolution, journalism, and extensive work representing psychological issues at the United Nations, to produce a book that is a major contribution to psychology and world peace and should be read by all." (Florence Denmark, Ph.D., Past President & Main Representative to the United Nations, American Psychological Association, Distinguished Research Professor, Pace University)

"Beyond Bullets and Bombs looks at the issues of an age-old conflict from a different angle. It combines the voices and expertise of people from many backgrounds to show a way out of violence and persecution. His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, famously states that peaces comes from within. This book gives us the sense that the seeds of peace have been planted and will be allowed to grow on Israeli and Palestinian soil. It is a book of hope!" (Victor Chan, Dalai Lama Center)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am in the process of conducting research in preparation for the sequel to my novel, "The Ballad of East and West", also sold on amazon.com. The information that I gleaned is most valuable.

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.
