One of the great statesmen in history, Shimon Peres, winner of the 1994 Nobel Prize, has shaped the history of Israel and the Middle East. The book follows Peres from his ancestral home in Poland to Israel, and from the youth movement leader to Prime Minister. In this memoir, Peres writes of his quarrels with Gold Meir and Yitzhak Rabin and writes of those he admired. He discusses the origins of the Israel nuclear program, and tells how he led the way toward the Oslo agreement. It is a fascinating view of the history of the Middle East and those who shaped what it is today.
