Shimon Peres — the beloved former prime minister of Israel and Nobel Prize winner who died last September — will reveal in a new book his thoughts on the turbulent history of the Jewish state and what it must do to flourish in the future.

"No Room for Small Dreams: Courage, Imagination, and the Making of Modern Israel," will be published by Custom House on Sept. 12 — one year after Peres suffered a massive stroke that led to his death a few weeks later.

According to the publisher, Peres, who finished the book shortly before his stroke, "offers a long-awaited examination of the crucial turning points in Israeli history … with the frankness of someone aware this would likely be his final statement."

Peres examines "pivotal moments in Israel's rise … what makes for a great leader, how to make hard choices in a climate of uncertainty and distress, the challenges of balancing principles with policies, and the liberating nature of imagination and unpredicted innovation," the publisher says.

"In doing so, he not only charts a better path forward for his beloved country, but provides deep and universal wisdom for younger generations who seek to lead — be it in politics, business, or the broader service of making our planet a safer, more peaceful, and just place."

Peres, who served as Israel's prime minister, president, foreign minister, and the head of several other ministries, was central to the establishment of the Israeli Defense Forces. He also was crucial to launching Israel's nuclear energy program.
