About the Author

Born in Mandatory Palestine, Hillel Bardin is a founder and former board member of the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, the Rapprochement Dialogue Center, and the Jerusalem Information Center, and he has served on the board of Defense for Children International. A founder of the Shlom Yerushalayim Party, he was its authorized representative in the Jerusalem Municipal Council.


"Few accounts of the struggle between two peoples, covetous of the same ancestral homeland, are as enlightening and moving."--Howard M. Sachar, author of A History of Israel

"Will have special resonance for many Jews, Muslims, Arabs, and others, both inside and outside the Middle East, who have been exposed to efforts at dialogue, discussion, and rapprochement between everyday people, but whose efforts and voices are lost in the din of ongoing violence, brainwashing of fear and hatred, and media-loving political grandstanding. [Bardin] provides a rare first-hand account of dialogue and joint-action efforts on the ground between Israelis and Palestinians [and] brings to light unknown grassroots episodes that illustrate both the hopeful potential for coexistence and the huge obstacles that continue to plague these well-intentioned efforts."--Neil Caplan, author (with Laura Zittrain Eisenberg) of Negotiating Arab-Israeli Peace

"A compelling, thoughtful, and honest examination of a complex situation from a powerfully conscientious peace activist."--ForeWord Reviews

"[A]s a panoramic view of . . . peace efforts by citizens on the ground during this turbulent period, Bardin's book allows the reader some wonderful insights."--National Catholic Reporter

"A Zionist Among Palestinians is a testimony to the effort to bring about change, to educate Palestinians and Israelis about one another, and to touch them one at a time."--Jewish Book Council
