"Cohen adds human insights to one of the most painful dimensions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Fascinating."—Tom Segev, author of 1967: Israel, the War, and the Year that Transformed the Middle East

"In Army of Shadows Hillel Cohen utilizes a broad range of sources in several languages to produce the most judicious and nuanced study available on the complex phenomenon of collaboration by Palestinian Arabs with agencies of the Zionist movement during the British mandate period. Cohen effectively explores the motives and contexts which led some Palestinians to collaborate with Zionism and assesses the extent to which such collaboration contributed to Zionism's success in acquiring land for Jewish settlement, overcoming Palestinian nationalist resistance, and laying the foundations of a Jewish state. This is a remarkable contribution to scholarship on the modern history of Palestine, on Palestinian society and politics, and on the Zionist project."—Zachary Lockman, author of Contending Visions of the Middle East: the History and Politics of Orientalism
