Advance praise for Rise and Kill First

"Absolutely revelatory. Ronen Bergman's history of Israel's 'targeted killings' leaves few secrets in the closet. Reading this book is like devouring a John le Carr#65533; spy thriller with footnotes, but Bergman also grapples with the hard questions and ultimately writes a tragic story of endless tactical victories leading to a strategic dead end. Anyone who cares about the fate of Israel and Palestine must devour this formidable history." --Kai Bird, Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer, author of The Good Spy: The Life and Death of Robert Ames, and director of the Leon Levy Center for Biography at CUNY Graduate Center
