'This sweeping account belongs on the bookshelves of Israelis who are fearful, Palestinians who are unsure of next steps, and a global community that has yet to take a meaningful stand for peace with justice. Anyone concerned about the future for all the peoples of the Middle East will take encouragement from his invigorating analysis' -- Mary Elizabeth King, professor of peace and conflict studies, University for Peace, and author, A Quiet Revolution: The First Palestinian Intifada and Nonviolent Resistance

'Qumsiyeh's inspiring accounts of both the everyday and the most extraordinary acts of Palestinian indigenous resistance to colonialism expose the misguided claims that Palestinians have never tried nonviolence; in fact, they are among the experts, whose courage, creativity, and resilience are an inspiration to people of conscience everywhere' -- Anna Baltzer, author of Witness in Palestine 'This is a timely and remarkable book written by the most important chronicler of contemporary popular resistance in Palestine' -- Nur Masalha 'Written with conviction and supported by extensive notes, this book should be required reading for the politicians who deal with peace in Palestine and the citizens who vote for them' -- CHOICE
