The General’s Son: Journal of an Israeli in Palestine 2nd edition:
“This is a brilliantly rendered father and son saga amidst a background that evokes Greek mythology. .. is a story of admiration and anger.” -Sy Hersh

“There are few books on the Israel/Palestine issue that seem as hopeful to me as this one.” – Alice Walker

“Matti Peled, the general of the title, was a remarkable personality. An underground Fighter, a combat soldier and an architect of the Israeli army that won the Six Day War, he was a militaristic hawk before becoming a peace activist. The man who pushed the Israeli government into the war turned into one of the most implacable enemies of the occupation that resulted from it.” -Uri Avnery, veteran Israeli peace activist and former member of Knesset

“This critically important memoir…is a must read.” -Naomi Wolf, author

This new edition contains an Epilogue that takes readers with Peled on his travels around the world to promote his message of personal discovery and peacemaking to South Africa, East Asia, Europe, the West Bank, Gaza, and Israel itself. He also reflects further on his continuing inner journey.

Injustice: The Story of the Holy Land Foundation Five
“Miko Peled shines a light on one of the most egregious cases of injustice committed to date against Muslim leaders in the United States. ..an ominous and important warning about the degradation of the rule of law and civil liberties that increasingly characterizes the United States” – Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist & former Middle East Bureau Chief for The New York Times
