Miko has recently been featured in a number of media outlets. Murray Polner of the History News Network reviewed The General’s Son favorably, writing that “Miko Peled’s idealistic and passionate memoir reflects in part those Jews everywhere who have grown increasingly uncomfortable with the harsh Israeli occupation and continuing colonization of the West Bank….” Additionally, Miko was interviewed by Marilyn Kleinberg Neimark about his book on the New York City radio program “Beyond the Pale” that focuses on Jewish politics and culture. As mentioned above, Miko spent several weeks in Israel and Palestine where he participated in a number of large demonstrations in Jerusalem, Ramallah, and Bil’in. You can read some about his experience in Bil’in on the Just World Books newsfeed. Stay tuned for more on Miko’s whereabouts in the fall.
