The thirteen contributors to Whither Israel? examine the social and ideological divisions that have beset Israel, the roots of the country's economic decline and the recent developments within, and dynamics of political parties and groupings. The majority of books available on Israel have chosen to focus predominantly on the Palestinian question and on the Arab-Israeli conflict as a whole. There have, as a result, been few studies that have attempted to explore the complexities of Israeli society and domestic politics. This book fills a distinct gap in attempting to cover such issues and provides a clearer understanding of the implications of the domestic challenge for the future direction of Israeli society, particularly in the light of the present Rabin government.

Editorial Reviews

Thirteen essays focus on the changes taking place in Israeli society and seek to judge the impact they may have on policy-making in the future. Three sections cover challenges and reform; the Israeli political system; and issues in Israeli society. The essays, by Israeli and British academics and political observers, grew out of a research project on Israel at England's Royal Institute of International Affairs. Annotation c.
