This balanced and comprehensive text explores Israeli government and politics from both institutional and behavioral perspectives. After briefly discussing Israel’s history and the early development of the state, Gregory Mahler then examines the social, religious, economic, cultural, and military contexts within which Israeli politics takes place. He makes special note of Israel’s geopolitical situation of sharing borders with, and being proximate to, several hostile Arab nations. The book explains the operation of political institutions and behavior in Israeli domestic politics, including the constitutional system and ideology, parliamentary government, the prime minister and the Knesset, political parties and interest groups, the electoral process and voting behavior, and the machinery of government. Mahler also considers Israel’s foreign policy setting and apparatus, the Palestinians and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the particularly sensitive questions of Jerusalem and the Israeli settlement movement, and the Middle East peace process overall. This clear and concise text provides an invaluable starting point for all readers needing a cogent introduction to Israel today.

أردنا أن نلج إلى التقديم لهذا الكتاب، بهذه الصورة، ليس بدافع جلد الذات، بل سعياً وراء خلق مسؤول عربي، تذوب مصالحه وهالة كرسيه، في إطار المصلحة العامة، والمستقبل الذي ينتظر الدولة والأمة، بحيث يوفر أرضية ممهدة لخلفه، يبدأ من آخرها وليس من نقطة الصفر.,نقول هذا، ونحن نقرأ مذكرات شمعون بيرس، مهندس اتفاقية السلام الفلسطينية – الإسرائيلية، فقد نيف الرجل على السبعين، وما زال يعمل بهمة الشباب، ترفده نجاحاته بمزيد من الاصرار على مواصلة العمل الدؤوب... وهو يعلم أن ما بقي من عمره، ليس فيه مساحة لزعامة، أو موضع لقيادة، ... لكنه يتطلع إلى مستقبل دولته وشعبه، وربما يطمح إلى تسجيل اسمه في كتب التاريخ.
