Feuerverger, G. (2001). Oasis of Dreams: Teaching and Learning Peace in a Jewish-Palestinian Village in Israel. New York: Routledge.

Summary:
Based on a nine-year study that Professor Grace Feuerverger carried out as ethnographer in an extraordinary village, “Oasis of Dreams” is about hope in the midst of deadly conflict. This book is a reflexive ethnography focusing on the two bilingual, bicultural educational institutions in this place of peaceful coexistence–an elementary school where Jewish and Arab children study together, and the “School for Peace” which is a conflict resolution outreach program for Israeli and Palestinian adolescents and their teachers.
