Summary
  • This paper examines the foundations of Israeli security policy and analyses the impact of changes in the external threat environment and in domestic politics and society. It argues that the traditional policy of deterrence based on "offensive defence," elaborated under David Ben-Gurion and his successors, is no longer adequate in the face of the new challenges posed by low-intensity warfare and weapons of mass destruction. Israel's ability to meet these challenges depends to a large extent on the fate of the peace process. This in turn hinges, at least in part, on the outcome of the domestic contest over the future character of Israeli politics and society. This contest is essentially between two positions: one inward-looking or "backlash," the other outward-looking or "internationalist." Its outcome will have long-term implications for Israel's security policy, both in terms of the kinds of threats that the country will face, and how well it will be able to deal with them
  • "The Middle East, particularly Israel, is often the site of extreme unrest and turmoil, drawing the attention of not only its neighbors but also the world. Such conflict has prompted many political scientists to ask the pivotal question: how should Israel respond to the changing external threats that confront it? This work argues that the country's traditional concept of security is obsolete and that it must be reformulated. But how this is achieved depends on developments within the Middle East and on the outcome of current shifts in Israel's politics and society. An indispensable resource for anyone studying Israel's changing security status, this book is also ideal for all those hoping for peace in the Middle East."--BOOK JACKET
