Full text not available from this repository.


This book traces Israel's transformation from a pioneering collective into its troubled present state. It examines the effect that the Palestinian problem has had on the Israeli state and its society. The book explores the nature of Zionist radicalism and shows how it was strengthened by the opposition to the Camp David accord, and the polemics that have raged over the territory captured during the Six-Day War. The book also analyzes the relationship between Israel and Diaspora, the effect on this of the Intifada and the Israeli reaction to it, and the possible consequences in this area of Yasser Arafat's support of Saddam Hussein.
