Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There are many new books out now on the challenges for Israeli security policy, and this book is one of the best in a strong field. The author delineates clearly how difficult it is for Israel to retain its Zionist identity and democratic framework while dealing with security threats from both within its borders and from outside. Freilich does not spare criticism where he finds flaws in the Israeli security decision making process, but he bases his conclusions on balanced analysis instead of his emotions. This is a must-read for both scholars and those who pay attention to Middle East affairs.
