Product description

Review

Ronen Bergman has set out in incontestable detail the history and scale of Israel's use of extrajudicial killing as an instrument of defense and foreign policy. His material is stark and sensational, but he steers a steady course through it, even pausing along the way to debate the effectiveness and morality of his subject. The result is a compelling read whatever your point of view. - John le Carre

A gripping investigation of Israel's assassination policy - Sunday Times

Remarkable - Observer

A masterpiece! Only Ronen Bergman's extraordinary research could have achieved it - Christopher Andrew, author of 'The Defence of the Realm: The Authorised History of MI5'

Exciting, sometimes moving and always considered...Not only is Bergman's book a stunning feat of research and a riveting read, it is also testament to the author's personal courage - Sunday Times

The Israeli government did its best to prevent Bergman from writing this ...fascinating new book about the history of Israeli assassinations, published during Israel's seventieth anniversary year. Rise and Kill First not only sheds light on that most secretive of subjects, Israel's intelligence services, but also has wider significance: how and why a state uses extra-judicial killing, and the consequences of doing so. - TLS

Terrific ... It's easy to understand why Bergman's book is already a bestseller. It moves at a torrid pace and tells stories that would make Jason Bourne sit up and say 'Wow!' It is smart, thoughtful and balanced. - The New York Times Book Review

An exceptional work, a humane book about an incendiary subject - New York Times

Book Description
