Product Description & Reviews

[Read by Mark Bramhall] 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. In 1934, eleven-year-old Shimon Peres arrived in Palestine from his native Poland, leaving behind an extended family that would later be killed in the Holocaust. Demonstrating his political skills in adolescence, he became immersed in paramilitary operations against the British, and was a crucial part of the 1948 war for independence. A protege of David Ben-Gurion, Peres not only helped create modern Israel, but would shape it in the years to come as the first director general of its Defense Ministry, as prime minister (twice), as the head of other key ministries -- including foreign affairs, transportation, and finance -- and until 2014, as president. Under his visionary stewardship, Israel became a formidable military power and global leader in high-tech. Peres was also instrumental in growing Israel's population--facilitating the immigration of millions of Jews worldwide -- and in securing peace with its enemy the Palestinian Liberation Organization, which earned him the Nobel Prize. In this, his final testimonial, finished in the last weeks of his life, this man of war and peace reflects on key events and fundamental Israeli principles to provide an understanding of his nation's rise and the challenges it faces. No Room for Small Dreams spans decades, events, and places -- from Jerusalem and Tel Aviv to Washington, D.C. and Gaza; from the Arab riots in the wake of World War I and the success of Israeli spy operations to the creation of Israel's nuclear program and the birth of its astonishing high tech industry; from its controversial wars and contentious peace treaties to the early kibbutz movement and today's extremist settlers. In looking back Peres also looks forward, offering a provocative meditation on Jewish success, the difficulties and sacrifices of making peace, and the courage necessary to emerge from the dark shadows of history into the bright promise of tomorrow.
