Book News
Barzilai (political science, U. of Tel Aviv) explains the national consensus and dissent in Israel by analyzing the effects of the protracted national security crisis and the Arab-Israeli wars since 1949. His analysis pivots on the principles concerning military force within the Israeli political spectrum, how they developed, and how they influence the sociopolitical order. He establishes a conceptual framework, then discusses democracy during the first stages of nation building, polyarchy during the territorial status quo, and the shift from a wartime to a civilian society.
