Israel and its Army by Stuart A. Cohen

Book Description

The Israel Defense Force (IDF) plays a key role in Israeli society, and has traditionally been perceived not only as the guardian of national survival, but also as a 'people's army' responsible for the custody of national values. This volume analyses the circumstances currently undermining these perceptions, and explores both the changes occurring in Israel's military framework, and their potential implications. The book highlights the influence exerted by massive shifts in both Israel's external strategic landscape and in the country's domestic and cultural environments, which have compelled the IDF to undertake major programmes of structural reform, technological adaptation and doctrinal revision. This book argues that these changes have lead the public to subject the armed forces and their conduct to unprecedented critical scrutiny. The way in which Israelis and their army resolve these tensions is of crucial importance not only for Israel, but for the Middle East as a whole.

Divine Service? by Stuart A. Cohen Divine Service?, Hardback (July 2013)

Soldiering, which for almost two millennia was almost entirely foreign to Jewish thought and practice, has by virtue of universal conscription become a rite of passage to citizenship in the Jewish state. For practicing orthodox Jews in Israel that change generates dilemmas that are intellectual as well as behavioural.

Army of the Republic by Stuart A. Cohen Army of the Republic, Paperback (October 2009)

In a corrupt America reeling from an economic collapse, a shadow civil war is gathering. On one side is James Sands, a billionaire and government crony harassed by civil opposition and armed militants. Standing against him is Lando, a twenty-something urban guerrilla, who leads the Army of the Republic on a campaign of bombing.
