Shimon Peres, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and one of the towering figures of the twentieth century, caps his legacy with this final book, completed shortly before his death - a majestic, intimate and personal exploration of modern Israel's history and values that provides invaluable insights for its future. Peres, who arrived in Palestine as an eleven-year-old in 1934, was one of Israel's most important founding fathers. Over the course of six decades, he served twice as Israel's Prime Minister and held every senior cabinet position, including Foreign Minister, Minister of Defense and Minister of Finance. As the capstone to his career, Peres served seven years as the ninth President of the state he helped build. He was widely seen a global leader and inspiration, evidenced not only in his winning the Nobel Peace Prize but through his ongoing leadership of the Peres Center for Peace. His experience of being at the centre of Israel's ascent - in particular, his role again and again as a crucial decision maker - gave him the unique authority to write a book looking at key events as a way to understand Israel's past and its future challenges. From Israel's War of Independence to the present day, from the revival of Jewish life and the birth of a nation after the Holocaust, from the creation of Israel's military to inside accounts of secret negotiations, from establishing Israel's nuclear program to launching the country's astonishing high tech industry, from financial crisis to economic triumph, No Room For Small Dreams spans decades. But the book is more than an intimate, personal history of Israel's rise. In this, his final testimonial to the world, Peres provocatively meditates on what makes for a great leader, how to make hard choices in a climate of uncertainty and distress, the challenge of making peace, the obligations and opportunities the next generation must embrace and the liberating power of imagination. His wisdom is deep and universal, meant for all around the world who seek a better life for themselves and their communities.
