The General's Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine by Miko Peled
In 1997, a tragedy struck the family of Israeli-American Miko Peled : His beloved niece Smadar was killed by a suicide bomber in Jerusalem. That tragedy propelled Peled onto a journey of discovery. It pushed him to re-examine many of the beliefs he had grown up with, as the son and grandson of leading figures in Israel's political-military elite, and transformed him into a courageous and visionary activist in the struggle for human rights and a hopeful, lasting peace between Israelis and Palestinians. This book is an account of that journey.
