Summary
  • T̀his is a timely and remarkable book written by the most important chronicler of contemporary popular resistance in Palestine. Mazin Qumsiyeh brilliantly evokes the spirit of Mahatma Gandhi, Edward Said, Rachel Corrie and many others, to tell the unvarnished truth about Palestine and Zionist settler colonialism. With its focus on "history and activism from below", this is a work of enormous significance. Developing further his original ideas on human rights in Palestine, media activism, public policies and popular, non-violent resistance, Mazin Qumsiyeh's book is a must read for anyone interested in justice and how to produce the necessary breakthrough in the Israel-Palestine conflict.'Nur Masalha author of The Politics of Denial: Israel and the Palestinian Refugee Problem (Pluto Press, 2003) --
  • Q̀umsiyeh's inspiring accounts of both the everyday and the most extraordinary acts of Palestinian indigenous resistance to colonialism expose the misguided claims that Palestinians have never tried nonviolence; in fact, they are among the experts, whose courage, creativity, and resilience are an inspiration to people of conscience everywhere.' Anna Baltzer author of Witness in Palestine (Paradigm, Revised Edition 2008) --
  • M̀arzin Qumsiyeh's ... sweeping account belongs on the bookshelves of Israelis who are fearful, Palestinians who are unsure of next steps, and a global community that has yet to take a meaningful stand for peace with justice. Anyone concerned about the future for all the peoples of the Middle East will take encouragement from this invigorating analysis.' Mary Elizabeth King author of A Quiet Revolution: The First Palestinian Intifada and Nonviolent Resistance (2008) --
  • The Western Media paint Palestinian resistance against Israeli occupation as exclusively violent: armed resistance, suicide bombings, and rocket attacks. In reality these methods are the exception to what is a peaceful and creative resistance movement. In this fascinating book, Dr. Mazin Qumsiyeh synthesises data from hundreds of original sources to provide the most comprehensive study of civil resistance in Palestine. --
  • The book contains hundreds of stories of the heroic and highly innovative methods of resistance employed by the Palestinians over more than 100 years. The author also analyses the successes, failures, missed opportunities, and challenges facing ordinary Palestinians as they struggle for freedom against incredible odds. --
  • The compelling human stories told in this book will inspire people of all faiths and political backgrounds to chart a better and more informed direction for a future of peace with justice. --Book Jacket
