Alternative formats available from:
Books on Israel provides professional students of Israel and the general public with an informative and up-to-date survey of books and ideas about Israeli society—ethnic relations, religious life, cultural trends, history, politics, and literature. Included in this volume are Nissim Rejwan's fascinating discussion of books on Israel published in the Arab world; Avner Yaniv's analysis of changing Israeli ideas about security and military strategy; Don Peretz's discussion of scholarship on Arab-Jewish relations; Ben Halpern's profile of Yitzhak Tabenkin and Berl Katznelson, and Ian Lustick's provocative critique of Eisenstadt's The Transformation of Israel.
This volume and the series which it inaugurates provide a forum for the interchange of ideas and the discussion of new directions in the study of Israel. Important works on Israel published in other languages will now be available to English-speaking audiences. At a time of rapid transformation in many spheres of Israeli life, this collection will inform and invigorate debates over Israel's past, present, and future.
Ian S. Lustick is Associate Professor of Government at Dartmouth College.
