No Room for Small Dreams,

Courage, Imagination, and the Making of Modern Israel

By Shimon Peres.

“Making peace is not a simple endeavor. It is a constant struggle. But its complexity should not overshadow its purpose.”

- Shimon Peres.

In 1934, eleven-year-old Shimon Peres emigrated to Israel's land from his native Poland, leaving behind an extended family who was killed later in the Holocaust.

Not many backs then would have predicted that this young man would eventually become one of the twentieth century's towering figures.

Peres would indeed go on to serve the new nation as prime minister, president, foreign minister, and the head of several other ministries.
