Elections and Voters in Israel

Synopsis

The debate between the promotion of personal interest and the general good of society has engaged political, social, and ethical theorists throughout history, and this volume addresses the topic of the Israeli electoral process within that theoretical framework. Diskin's analysis of the voting process in Israel involves a definition of its ideological basis, profiles of voting constituents, and an outline of prominent political issues, as well as recommendations for needed reform within the system. This approach yields an evaluation that demonstrates the extent to which the Israeli democratic system succeeds as a constructive solution to the basic social dilemma of self-interest versus the public good.
