Living without a Constitution: Civil Rights in Israel


"Covering the history of Israel since its birth, this comprehensive discussion is the first to focus on the historical, ideological, and political determinants of the civil rights issue within Israel. Important topics covered include the historical and ideological roots of Israeli democracy; the problems of a collective society during the establishment of a democratic state; legal and political attitudes toward human rights in the Occupied Territories and the implications of these attitudes for the peace process; the dilemma of a democracy in a state of war; and problems of democracy versus national security. The author, Dr. Daphna Sharfman, teaches at Haifa University and is Chair of the Civil Rights Committee of the Israel Labor Party. Dr. Sharfman makes use of exclusive interviews with Israeli policy makers." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
