Democratic Societies and Their Armed Forces: Israel in Comparative Context
Routledge | 2000 | ISBN: 0714680923 | Pages: 312 | PDF | 1.56 MB

Throughout the democratic world, armed forces are having to adapt to sweeping shifts in their domestic status. This book attempts to explore the possible implications of that situation for Israel - a state long considered a paradigmatic "nation in arms".
Containing an edited selection of papers presented at an international BESA conference held in 1998, this book presents an overview of current transformations in societal-military relations in the western world. Within the context of that framework, it then explores their specific manifestations in Israel. The result is a comprehensive study of a process which, in Israel as elsewhere, already affects the very fabric of a vital sphere of public life.
