Previous book: Our Way to Fight, explores the lives, motives and actions of grassroots peace and human rights activists in Israel-Palestine. A primary goal of my work is to recover voices and stories of people who have been silenced or marginalized, written out of the official version: First Nations (aboriginal) youth, Mozambican farmers, inmates in Canadian prisons, traditional healers in Fiji, queer folk across Canada, Guatemalan labour activists.

Our Way to Fight is a fascinating, informative and very well-written oral history of contemporary peace-work in Israel/Palestine. In the book, readers meet an array of people engaged in non-violent peace-work in that part of the world: Palestinians who live in the occupied territories, Jewish Israelis and Palestinians living in Israel, and one or two people from that part of the world now living temporarily in the West. In their own words, these people describe their work, their near- and longer-term goals and hopes, their frustrations and in some cases their successes. The author's on-going commentary adds background and context about the people's lives, their activities and organizations, responses from their communities and reactions (political, administrative, military, judicial) by the Israeli government. As with his earlier oral histories, readers will recognize in this book Riordan's gentle, beautifully descriptive and reflective writing style. Although I've 'paid attention' to events and developments in Palestine/Israel over most of my seventy years, seldom have I ever come across detailed information as well-grounded and concretely-located as this book contains. I recommend as highly as I can.

If you want to get on the ground and talk to people working for peace in Israel-Palestine then read Michael Riordon's new book, Our Way to Fight. Riordon takes you on a field trip revealing the wide spectrum of initiatives undertaken by Israelis and Palestinians, against great odds and at risk to their own lives, to resist the occupation and eventually to end it. I like the intimacy of his interviews with regular people who explain their motivation to get involved in what seems like an insurmountable challenge. Riordon also conveniently provides background coverage on historical events associated with the formation of the State of Israel and the Occupation. I found the most hopeful aspect of this book to be the number of Jewish Israeli citizens quoted to have realized the fallacy of their own government's policies and who have consequently taken action. If you find the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict disheartening, then read this book for while Riordon does not minimize the immense challenge of attaining peace, the people you'll meet in his book demonstrate the astounding resilience of both Israelis and Palestinians, which should inspire any reader to try to affect change.

This book has given me hope by renewing my faith in human beings. Michael Riordon portrays ordinary people under desperate conditions living extraordinary lives. The "fighters" who work for peace in Israel-Palestine insist they're not heroes. It's true: they're believable, approachable, ordinary folks whose compassion, courage, and vision are heroic.

Michael Riordon's superb prose helps the reader to understand an ancient region convulsed with tensions. Riordon himself engages in one of the most decent and human acts possible: bearing witness. He does it with care, insight and commitment. This is an immensely readable book. I heartily recommend it to anyone who cares about the world and about life.
