‘TGS’ reaches its first readers!

March 8, 2012

The General’s Son has started to reach the first lucky readers in the United States! The wonderful supporters who placed advance orders for the book over the past three months started having their copies shipped out on Monday– starting with people in the United States. Orders will be shipping out to readers in the United Kingdom and Australia within just a few days, too.

If you didn’t make it in time to place an advance order, you can still get some great deals on buying the book from the Just World Books webstore. For example, if you buy just two copies (or one copy of TGS and one of another JWB title), you’ll get free shipping!

We would love to use this blog as a place where you, the readers, can discuss some of the ideas contained in the book, and tell us your reactions to it. Do please consider contributing your comments here! (And keep watching this blog to learn more details about Miko’s very busy speaking schedule.)

    I will likely be writing a book review of this powerful and beautiful book, so I won’t say too much here, except I had no idea what it was like to get inside an Israeli’s head. I was surprised by the amount of fear experienced by Miko and his wife Gila from completely innocuous situations, like going to a dialogue group in California. And then in ten years for Miko to have gone from that mentality to making friends with people who killed Israeli soldiers is truly astonishing.

    Also I am haunted by the story about the Israeli who had drowned Palestinian fishermen for no reason and then shared the story casually as if he were not ashamed to have murdered innocent civilians who posed no threat whatsoever. Miko’s father was right: Zionism has destroyed the Jewish people’s mission to be a light unto the nations. Thank goodness for brave, compassionate people like Miko who are standing against the tide of fear, selfishness, and racist, violent hatred.

    If you haven’t read the book yet, get it. We’ll doubtless be seeing more from this passionate activist, and you’ll be glad you were in the know from the first.
