This book tells the story of the Israeli peace movement and the role it played in that pursuit of peace. It is an eloquent, fascinating account of a remarkably diverse and determined cast of activists: from war-weary soldiers to hard-headed politicians, careful scholars to impassioned artists. Drawing on his experience in the peace movement, Bar-On provides intimate portraits of groups like Peace Now, Yesh Gvul, and the Women in Black. He also provides a sweeping historical synthesis of the course of the Israeli-Arab conflict, especially between 1967 and 1993.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/40094255<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"History<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/34149797<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"In pursuit of peace : a history of the Israeli peace movement<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"604162838<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/604162838#PublicationEvent\/washington_d_c_united_states_institute_of_peace_press_1996<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/40094255#Agent\/united_states_institute_of_peace_press<\/a>> ; # United States Institute of Peace Press<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/books.google.com\/books?id=WAtiVXOsv7EC<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/catalog.hathitrust.org\/api\/volumes\/oclc\/34149797.html<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/604162838<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
