Zichroni V. State of Israel: The Biography of a Civil Rights Lawyer
Zichroni v. State of Israel tells the story of Amnon Zichroni, the Israeli civil rights lawyer whose legal and political battles from the early 1950s to the present day reveal a hitherto unknown chapter in the history of Israel: the struggle for human and civil rights in the country and in the occupied territories. Michael Keren's compelling narrative explores the seminal court cases in which Zichroni challenged the definition of citizenship by nationalist criteria; opposed the construction of West Bank settlements; and defended freedom of the press, association, and religion. The work offers a vivid portrayal of one man's campaign for justice in an embattled nation struggling to balance security imperatives with the rule of law.
