Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"The book is not just interesting--it is exciting. It was a pleasure to read, and I recommend it without hesitation." -- Donna Robinson Divine, Smith College

This book focuses on the nature of Israeli politics in the 'post-Begin' era. It examines significant contemporary issues such as the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Lebanon; the harnessing of the enormous inflation rate; the escalating tension between religious and secular Israeli Jews; the widening influence of radical right wing activist Rabbi Meir Kahane; the fluctuating relationship between Israel and the U.S.; the survival of the Likud Party; and changes in national electoral strategies of the major parties. It places recent events in Israeli politics in a historical context and suggests what the implications of these events might be for the future.

"I found this to be a valuable chronicle not only of politics in Israel in the immediate post-Begin era, but also in regard to Israeli politics now and in the coming decade." -- Jerrold D. Green, University ofArizona

Gregory S. Mahler is Professor and Chair of the Political Science Department at the University of Mississippi.
