أردنا أن نلج إلى التقديم لهذا الكتاب، بهذه الصورة، ليس بدافع جلد الذات، بل سعياً وراء خلق مسؤول عربي، تذوب مصالحه وهالة كرسيه، في إطار المصلحة العامة، والمستقبل الذي ينتظر الدولة والأمة، بحيث يوفر أرضية ممهدة لخلفه، يبدأ من آخرها وليس من نقطة الصفر.,نقول هذا، ونحن نقرأ مذكرات شمعون بيرس، مهندس اتفاقية السلام الفلسطينية – الإسرائيلية، فقد نيف الرجل على السبعين، وما زال يعمل بهمة الشباب، ترفده نجاحاته بمزيد من الاصرار على مواصلة العمل الدؤوب... وهو يعلم أن ما بقي من عمره، ليس فيه مساحة لزعامة، أو موضع لقيادة، ... لكنه يتطلع إلى مستقبل دولته وشعبه، وربما يطمح إلى تسجيل اسمه في كتب التاريخ.
