National Security and Democracy in Israel
Lynne Rienner Publishers, 1993 - History - 257 pages
The Arab-Israeli conflict in general and the Palestinian intifada in particular have given rise to a wave of critical reappraisals of the Israeli experience - reappraisals that increasingly have come from those who can be described as mainstream Israelis. Situated within this emerging tradition of scholarly criticism, this book addresses a variety of problems that arise from the fact that Israel has been, since its inception, a democracy under seige.
