A comment about the book written by Nora Barrows-Friedman:

“Profoundly inspirational, the personal histories, philosophies, tactics, and hope expressed by university students gathered here by Ms. Barrows-Friedman show us not just what it is to be an activist, but what is is to be human. This book should be read by all working on this issue, or simply willing to be informed and inspired by these students, who are, as was my daughter Rachel, organizing for justice in Palestine.”
