"An unparalleled testimony of persecution, protest, conflict resolution and hope. By taking seriously stories, cultures and communities, Gregory Cran masterfully weaves together astonishing firsthand narratives of twentieth-century Doukhobor oppression with a rigorous academic analysis of conflict and terror. The important lessons Cran draws about the treatment of minority groups, public policy and conflict resolution animated by his direct personal involvement, his remarkable command of primary materials and his reaching analysis will be of equal interest to historians, sociologists, politicians, lawyers and others who deal with, or care about, conflict and its resolution in our modern democratic societies." -- Trevor C. W. Farrow, Faculty of Law, University of Alberta
