Quotes & Highlights
“_Like Dreamers_ is passionate and dispassionate at the same time, all-knowing and curious, objective politically even when dealing with the most politically divisive issues. The writing is, quite simply, music. Like Dreamers not only fills a gap in the literature on Israel, it fills entire shelves. It will be invaluable.” —Michael Oren, bestselling author of Six Days of War and former Israeli Ambassador to the United States
