This book focuses on the nature of Israeli politics in the 'post-Begin' era. It examines significant contemporary issues such as the withdrawal of Israeli forces from Lebanon; the harnessing of the enormous inflation rate; the escalating tension between religious and secular Israeli Jews; the widening influence of radical right wing activist Rabbi Meir Kahane; the fluctuating relationship between Israel and the U.S.; the survival of the Likud Party; and changes in national electoral strategies of the major parties. It places recent events in Israeli politics in a historical context and suggests what the implications of these events might be for the future.
