Summary
  • "This volume brings together a set of articles on political parties, elections and social cleavages that address theoretical aspects of these concepts with reference to Israel, and subjects Israel to a comparative analysis. The articles are by the leading international and Israeli scholars in the field. Written for academics, graduate students and practitioners who wish to understand Israeli politics, each essay provides a valuable source of information in its own right."--BOOK JACKET.
