Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This book examines the structure of Israeli interest groups, their strategies, their effectiveness, and their relations with state organizations and political parties. It addresses such important questions as the following. What are the links between political parties and interest groups? What are the attitudes of senior state officials toward interest groups? Why do interest groups influence public policy and to what extent? Are some groups more influential than others? Is Israel moving toward a post-materialist era?

Land of Paradoxes reflects the realities of contemporary Israeli politics. Using a framework of universal interest-group configurations, the book shows how Israel deviates from these patterns and places it in a historical and comparative perspective.

Yael Yishai is Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Haifa University. She is the author of Land and Peace: Whither Israel; The Power of Expertise: Israel Medical Association, and she is co-author of Israel: The Peaceful Belligerent.
