The Politics of Protest: The Israeli Peace Movement and the Palestinian Intifada

Front Cover
Sussex Academic Press, 1996 - History - 248 pages

This book explores the complex relationship between the moderate and militant sections of the different groups of the Israeli peace movement as they compete, cooperate, and occasionally clash. Special attention is given to the rise of the autonomous women's peace movement and its chief component, Women In Black, which maintained weekly vigils, mobilizing thousands of women. The movement became a symbol of perseverance in the fight for peace.

The Glossary of Political Parties and Groups in Israel, and a section on the Ideological Approaches to Peace and the Arab Question in Israeli Politics, make this book essential reading for anybody wishing to come to terms with how the Israeli political scene will react to the recent Israel-PLO accord.
