From the PublisherThere can hardly be a better person to record and analyse the history of Israel's peace movement than Mordechai Bar-On, who combines a rigorous academic discipline with first-hand experience and knowledge of the movement from the inside. . . . His treatment of the subject is well-documented, comprehensive, engaging, and lucid. It will certainly serve as the best resource on the subject to be published so far.
This is a grant tour-de-force and a first-rate analysis of the Israeli peace movement. Bar-On's treatment of the subject is well documented, comprehensive, engaging, and lucid - the best resource on the subject so far.
The title indicates the book’s twofold aim: to write the history of the Israeli peace movement and to demonstrate that it is a work in progress with no assurance that the pursuit of peace will succeed. . . . Bar-On presents an extraordinarily balanced, comprehensive, and lucid treatment, the best resource on the subject so far.
Presented with clarity, forthrightness and a real attempt to lean over backwards for the sake of objectivity. . . . The book has been described by Shulamit Aloni as the best resource on the subject so far, and praised by Uri Avneri and Lyova Eliav on the Israeli side, and Faisal Husseini on the Palestinian side. Indeed, Pursuit does appear to be an almost day-by-day account of virtually everything political that has happened in Israel in more recent years, though its analytical scope take in half a century.
