    In this, his final work, finished only weeks before his passing, Peres offers a long-awaited examination of the crucial turning points in Israeli history through the prism of having been a decision maker and eyewitness. Told with the frankness of someone aware this would likely be his final statement, No Room for Small Dreams spans decades and events, but as much as it is about what happened, it is about why it happened.

    Israeli president, former prime minister, and Nobel Peace Prize winner Shimon Peres is one of the great statesmen of the modern world. Peres is also a fascinating, complex man: a brilliant intellectual who is entirely at home in the corridors of power, an individual revered by the world and yet highly controversial in his own country, at once a hero and a figure of tragedy. Listen as Shimon Peres sits down with his official biographer, Michael Bar-Zohar.

    Shimon Peres was in his early 20s when he first met David Ben-Gurion. Although the state that Ben-Gurion would lead through war and peace had not yet declared its precarious independence, the "Old Man", as he was called even then, was already a mythic figure. Peres, who came of age in the cabinets of Ben-Gurion, is uniquely placed to evoke this figure of stirring contradictions - a prophetic visionary and a canny pragmatist who early grasped the necessity of compromise for national survival.
