JNS.org – A new book by the late Israeli statesman Shimon Peres, which delves into pivotal moments in the Jewish state’s history from his perspective, is due out this fall.

Peres, Israel’s ninth president, penned his final work just weeks before he died at age 93 on Sept. 28, 2016.

The book, No Room for Small Dreams: Courage, Imagination, and the Making of Modern Israel, looks at the “crucial turning points in Israeli history through the prism of having been a decision maker and eyewitness,” according to Amazon. The book “explores 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.”

His publisher, HarperCollins, released a statement on Tuesday, saying the book will be on sale Sept. 12.
