The Pluto Press Blog - Independent, radical publishing

Asa Winstanley, journalist and author of Corporate Complicity in Israel’s Occupation  has written a review of Lerman’s new book in Electronic Intifada today.

You can go to the review’s page by clicking here, but we’ve reproduced some of Asa’s concluding remarks below, just to give you a flavour of it.

Lerman settles scores with establishment figures who have wronged him. He puts across his side of the story frankly. But this is never done in a bitter or petty fashion. In fact Lerman has been remarkably tolerant, considering some of the abuse he has had to put up with.

This is a brave and honest book. Lerman has been frank about opinions he once held, views he would now reject. While inevitably there is a focus on the nagging doubts he had even while still a committed Zionist, there is no attempt to whitewash his past opinions.
