This text tells the story of Amnon Zichroni, the Israeli civil rights lawyer whose legal and political battles from the early 1950s reveal a hitherto unknown chapter in the history of Israel: the struggle for human and civil rights in the occupied territories. Michael Keren's narrative explores the seminal court cases in which Zichroni challenged the definition of citizenship by nationalist criteria, opposed the construction of West Bank settlement, and defended freedom of the press, of association, and of religion. The work offers a portrayal of one man's campaign for justice in an embattled nation struggling to balance security imperatives with the rule of law.
