Armed resistance, suicide bombings, and rocket attacks, populate the Western media's depiction of Palestinian resistance. Synthesising data from hundreds of original sources, Dr. Mazin Qumsiyeh provides the most comprehensive study of the always creative, often peaceful, civil resistance in Palestine.

Successes, failures, missed opportunities and challenges are chronicled through hundreds of stories from over a hundred years of Palestinian resistance. The book critically and comparatively surveys uprisings under Ottoman rule, against the Balfour Declaration and the Oslo Accords, all the way up to the Boycotts, Divestments and Sanctions movement.

The compelling human stories told in this book will inspire people of all faiths and political backgrounds to chart a better and more informed direction for a future of peace with justice.

Mazin B. Qumsiyeh is a professor at Bethlehem and Birzeit Universities and works with a number of civil society organizations.
