Dr. Ghoulem Berrah describes himself as a freedom fighter. He was raised in Algeria, but he attended the University of Bordeaux to study medicine. After studying medicine, he went to Indiana University to earn his master's degree in biology before working as a lecturer at the Yale School of Medicine. The immaculate reputation of Dr. Ghoulem speaks for itself and is evident in his writing. Dr. Ghoulem's memoir, A Dream For Peace, tells us about his challenges and the occasions that kindled his interest in diplomacy and world peace.

Dr. Ghoulem grew up in Algeria at a time when France still had Algeria under its control, and, as a result, the French language, culture, and discrimination against Algerians were all prevalent across the country, which was terrible. Dr. Ghoulem initially desired to become a well-known rider, but he was unaware that his heroic acts of patriotism would take him on a different path. He was arrested multiple times while following his chosen course. The hardships of Dr. Ghoulem are central to this narrative, which also explores issues of politics, unity, and freedom. It has helped me see the value and potential of world peace.

The writing of Dr. Ghoulem is simple and easy to understand. He avoided making too many pointless digressions and maintained his optimism right up until the very end. Given that Dr. Ghoulem identified as a Muslim, his marriage to a Catholic woman was audacious, and I appreciate that he opened up about his relationship with her. I really appreciated reading Dr. Ghoulem's views on racism, religion, and potential strategies for establishing world peace at all costs. I particularly appreciated that Dr. Ghoulem made a special effort to incorporate images in this book. Although the photographs were of poor quality, they nevertheless helped me to picture and grasp the seriousness of what was happening throughout the book.

I enjoyed reading this book and disliked nothing about it. I got the impression that the author put a lot of work into crafting his tale and creating a good book that will stand the test of time. Furthermore, I didn't come across any grammatical or punctuation errors or editing problems. This book, in my opinion, was exceptionally well-edited.

I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars because I enjoyed it, and I believe that more people should read it. Dr. Ghoulem has very interesting opinions on racism and religion that will benefit most people. I didn't rate it lower because there was nothing I hated about this book. I recommend this book to people over the age of 16 who are interested in historical fiction and memoirs. If you are interested in things like international relations or diplomacy, then you may also enjoy reading this book.

I studied international relations and I am fascinated by history, so I'll consider this book. Nice to see that you don't consider it to be too long or too dull.
