Government and Politics in Israel

Edited by Benyamin Neuberger

This 10-volume series deals with key issues in Israels political system and analyzes these issues in light of various political science theories. It examines the institutional-structural facets of the political system in Israel (government), as well as its behavioral-dynamic aspects (politics) in the first fifty years of statehood (1948-1998).


The series does not aim to provide a detailed historical-chronological description of the political events and developments which transpired during these years, but rather to highlight general trends. It provides an excellent review of Israel's political system, its foci of activity and points of contention.
