9780156001922: Israel, Palestine and Peace: Essays

The haunting poetry of [Oz’s] prose and the stunning logic of his testimony make a potent mixture.” —Washington Post Book World

Amos Oz was one of the first voices of conscience to advocate for a two-state solution. As a founding member of the Peace Now movement, Oz has spent over thirty-five years speaking out on this issue, and these powerful essays and speeches span an important and formative period for understanding today’s tension and crises. Whether he is discoursing on the role of writers in society or recalling his grandmother’s death in the context of the language’s veracity; examining the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a tragicomedy or questioning the Zionist dream, Oz remains trenchant and unflinching in this moving portrait of a divided land.

“[Oz is] the modern prophet of Israel.” —Sunday Telegraph (UK)

About the Author:

AMOS OZ was born in Jerusalem in 1939. He is the author of fourteen novels and collections of short fiction, and numerous works of nonfiction. His acclaimed memoir A Tale of Love and Darkness was an international bestseller and recipient of the prestigious Goethe Prize, as well as the National Jewish Book Award. Scenes from Village Life, a New York Times Notable Book, was awarded the Prix Méditerranée Étranger in 2010. He lives in Tel Aviv, Israel.


From Library Journal:

Oz (Under This Blazing Light, LJ 5/1/95), an essayist and best-selling Israeli novelist, has been a leading campaigner in the Peace Now movement. This collection of essays, speeches, and letters from the period 1976-94 reflects his concern about paths to peace between Israelis and Palestinians. The book contains a collection of 12 pieces stressing the general themes that the Palestinian demand for statehood is a legitimate one and that peace is essential for Israel's survival. Some of the most provocative pieces include "Integrity," a 1985 speech discussing the role of the writer in modern society, and "Hizbollah in a Skullcap," a February 1994 essay about the lessons to be drawn from the 1994 Hebron massacre. Oz's essays, though often controversial, are well written and powerful; well recommended for popular collections in public and academic libraries.?Mark Weber, Kent State Univ., Lib., Ohio
