Abstract

Maxine Kaufman-Lacusta's new book offers us a compelling invitation to consider non-violent activism as a path to peaceful resolution in the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In a series of interviews, essays and commentaries, and with contributions from notable peace activists such as Ghassan Andoni, Ursula Franklin, Jeff Halper, Starhawk and others, she explores many forms of creative non-violence and its powerful effects. Refusing to be Enemies culminates Kaufman-Lacusta's extensive activism and experiences living in Jerusalem for seven years. In their own words, activists share their hopes, experiences, challenges and dreams for the future. In part one of the book, Kaufman-Lacusta asks the question, "Why nonviolence? Why anti-occupation activism?" Part two explores strategies and applications of nonviolent action through interviews with both Palestinian and Israeli organizations, notably focusing on the issues, attitudes about and challenges to Palestinians and Israelis working together and joining forces in the struggle.
