— NYT Lauds Bergman’s Rise and Kill First —

New York Times writer Jennifer Szalai writes, “What follows is an exceptional work, a humane book about an incendiary subject.┬áBlending history and investigative reporting, Bergman never loses sight of the ethical questions that arise when a state, founded as a refuge for a stateless people who were targets of a genocide, decides it needs to kill in order to survive.”
