The General's Son: Journey Of An Israeli In Palestine

The General's Son is the powerful account, by Israeli peace activist Miko Peled, of his transformation from a young man who'd grown up in the heart of Israel's elite and served proudly in its military into a fearless advocate of nonviolent struggle and equal rights for all Palestinians and Israelis. (His journey mirrored in many ways the transformation his father, a much-decorated Israeli general, had undergone three decades earlier.) In The General's Son, Peled paints touching portraits of his childhood in Jerusalem, of the tumultuous events that sparked his transformation, and of the Palestinian and Israeli peace activists he has worked with in recent years. When the first edition of The General's Son appeared in 2012, Pulitzer Prize" winning author Alice Walker contributed a Foreword in which she wrote, "There are few books on the Israel/Palestine issue that seem as hopeful to me as this one." After the first edition came out, Peled took its message to enthusiastic audiences around the United States and the world. For this new edition, he added an Epilogue that takes readers with him on many of these journeys: to South Africa, East Asia, several European countries, and the West Bank, Gaza, and Israel itself. He also reflects on his continuing inner journey to understand more deeply the requirements of a peaceful order.
