Reviews

Recipient of the Victor J. Goldberg IIE Prize for Peace in the Middle East for pioneering work in engaging Israeli and Palestinian teachers and teenagers in changing deeply entrenched and polarizing attitudes on both sides of the region's conflict

The battle lines of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict extend to the classroom, where the two sides' versions of their shared history diverge sharply. Now, two university professors aim to change the way the conflict is taught by exposing Palestinian students to Israeli history lessons and Israeli students to the Palestinian version of history.
--"USA Today"


"Innovative... A small but important step, if not toward peace, then perhaps toward understanding... Developed by a group of Israeli and Palestinian teachers, this text will prove useful not just to the young, but to anyone who quails at the thought of even attempting to unravel the knotty history of the Middle East."
--Kirkus Reviews
