Reviews
"Democratic visions such as Boehm's [are] essential to frame a practical discourse of shared liberation." --Steve France, Monodweiss

"Omri Boehm attempts to reconcile Israel's history with the demands of justice. His ideas are radical just as much as they are hopeful. Boehm is one of the most important philosophers of his generation." --Susan Neiman

"[The] most important book on the solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict . . . that has appeared in recent years." --Micha Brumlik, Die Zeit

"Boehm elegantly synthesizes a tortuous history and offers an imaginative model for Israel's political future" --Kirkus Reviews

"Expansive. . . [Haifa Republic is] a life-raft for the followers of a liberal Zionism now floating aimlessly off the coastal city." --Shaul Magid, +972 Magazine

"[Haifa Republic is a] brave and sleek polemic. . . Boehm makes a stimulating case for the fact that Zionism's fathers (including Menachem Begin!) would have agreed with Israel being 'a joint, sovereign state.' . . . Boehm's agile blade, swung in the cause of recognizing reality, cuts both ways, and that lends his book its persuasiveness." --Bill Marx, The Arts Fuse
