Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Essays attempt to move beyond the question of Israel's uniqueness to examine the pace and direction of change of Israel's political, social, and economic institutions. Using tools of comparative analysis, scholars from Israel, the US, and Europe describe ways in which Israeli society is becoming more like other democratic industrialized societies, and look at some areas in which Israeli institutions and culture are resisting change. Topics explored include the judicial system, political leadership style, ethnic divisions, and abortion politics. Levi-Faur is a lecturer in comparative public policy at the University of Haifa. Paper edition $24.50. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
