new book: Zionism- An Indigenous Struggle

Zionism: An Indigenous Strruggle
Left: Native American tipi Right: Israeli pioneer tents

I am pleased to announce that a new book ZIONISM- AN INDIGENOUS STRUGGLE, co-edited by Machla Abramovitz and me will soon be published  by the Canadian Institute for Jewish Research (CIJR) and RVP Press.  This one is non-fiction, but reflects the same interest in aboriginal cultures, exile, and return that lie at the heart of my novel Quantum Cannibals.

The articles are from academics, ambassadors, veterans and activists, be they Jewish, Native American, or other ethnicity.  All of us came together to bring forth information which is especially critical in an era where feelings are often confused with fact, history confused with narrative.  If you’re subscribed to this site’s mailing list, I’ll let you know when and  where you can order the book.

One thought on “new book: Zionism- An Indigenous Struggle

  1. My take? We (First Nations) have the most suitable role model to follow in that of how Jews were able to regain their sovereignty. Their model also allows for us a productive life in the meanwhile.

What's your take?
