Peled is the grandson of an early Zionist leader and founder of the state of Israel. His father, Mattityahu Peled, was a top general during the 1967 war who went on to become a member of Israel's parliament representing the small peace movement. The book is both a personal account of the author's political evolution and a manifesto for Israelis and friends who support Palestinian rights. You can read more online about Peled here and about the book here.
Please mark your calendar and come hear The General's Son.
