Israeli government and politics have undergone significant changes since the second edition of this book was published in 1983. Israel withdrew from Lebanon, absorbed hundreds of thousands of new immigrants from the collapsed Soviet Union and Ethiopia, and undertook peace negotiations with the Palestinians and other Arab neighbors that led to a historic peace treaty, the Declaration of Principles. These events were made possible as a result of several institutional, legal, and normative changes in the political system. This completely revised edition of The Government and Politics of Israel offers a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the dynamics of Israeli politics. This edition focuses on issues that have become central in the study of Israel’s political system, such as new electoral procedures, the formation of new parties, government administrative reorganization, fresh personalities on the national scene, and the peace process. The book is intended to familiarize those interested in Israel’s government with its origins; the evolution of its institutions, practices, and traditions; and the workings of the government today.
Don Peretz is professor emeritus of Binghamton University. Gideon Doron is professor of political science at Tel Aviv University.
