Advanced Praise for Broken Promises, Broken Dreams
“Broken Promises, Broken Dreams” probes beyond the geopolitical realities confronting Israelis and Palestinians. It is a soul searching, painfully honest examination of ordinary people bonded in a tragic embrace. Ultimately this powerful book is about healing festering wounds and narrowing irreconcilable differences. It deserves the widest readership.” – Bernard Lown, MD, Professor emeritus Harvard School of Public Health, Co-recipient Nobel Peace Prize
