Reviews
"Without in any way justifying the extreme violence or the views of the perpetrators--or attempting to equate or rationalize individual attacks--Cohen successfully helps a contemporary reader understand the complexity of the conflict as it was both experienced and remembered. . . . Year Zero is a highly intellectual yet accessible exploration of a formative period in the history of the Arab-Israeli Conflict, and the creation of identity and historical perspective. While not written about contemporary events, its thoughtful, holistic approach sheds great insight on conflict today in origins, practice, and memory."-- "Jewish Book World"
"Cohen has produced a brilliant book--meticulously researched, exhilarating, intimidating and more than occasionally disturbing."-- "Marginalia-LA Review of Books"
Hillel Cohen's remarkable recent book. . . . For those who want a portal into the two hearts of darkness at the core of the struggle between Jews and Arabs in Palestine and Israel, it is a great journey.-- "Partners for Progressive Israel"
"Cohen's analysis of the situation in 1929 goes very much against the grain of the usual Zionist narrative and even the non-partisan historical research concerning this period."-- "Jewish Review of Books"
