Politik in Israel
Politik in Israel
By Michael Wolffsohn
Leske Verlag & Budrich, 1983, 776 pp

A handbook of Israeli politics too massive to hold in the hand, truly German in its thoroughness and detail. It gives the history of parties, ideologies, elections and political practices since before independence, with attention to generational change, "Oriental" immigration, relations with the Arab minority, and many other factors which have changed the system even as it has retained its essence.
