Israel's security state is the most intelligent and skilful in the region, yet more than six decades after its foundation, the nation remains unable to reach a lasting peace with its neighbours. This important, insightful study traces the roots of this problem in the central position of the military in Israeli politics, and the absence of counterbalancing civilian institutions. Through key personalities, from Ben-Gurion to Netanyahu, it reveals the inner workings, and innermost fears, of the embattled Israeli state.
