Reviews

'This is a critically important analysis of assumptions in peace education, based on a rich corpus of research in Israeli and Cypriot classrooms. The analysis challenges assumptions about our understanding of identity, memory and reconciliation, and challenges us to help children envisage and realise alternative futures.' Tony Gallagher, Professor of Education and Pro Vice Chancellor, Queen's University, Belfast
'... a most compelling ethnographic comparative study of education that deals with issues of conflicting memories, identities and historical narratives in divided societies. It raises serious questions that challenge the prevailing psychologically oriented and Western-based epistemologies of peace education. Being written for both professionals and practitioners, it is a must read for anybody in the field of reconciliation, peace education and forgiveness.' Gabi Salomon, Professor Emeritus and Head of the Center for Research on Peace Education, Haifa University, Israel
