The New Israel
Peacemaking and Liberalization
New Israel by Gershon Shafir
Book DescriptionThe New Israel: Peacemaking and Liberalization argues that the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian peace process will be expedited by increased economic liberalization. Israel has undergone dramatic economic change in the 1990s, shifting from a strongly protectionist, state-centered economy to a more international, "neoliberal" one. The book maintains that these fundamental changes have in turn transformed Israeli society as a whole, resulting in a significant moderation of attitudes toward the Palestinian people and Palestinian nationalism. The New Israel contains contributions from both established Israeli sociologists and promising young scholars. The New Israel: Peacemaking and Liberalization is an insightful commentary on one of the most crucial international issues of our time.

Half Century of Occupation, Hardback (May 2017)
The Israel-Palestine conflict is one of the world's most polarizing confrontations. Its current phase, Israel's "temporary" occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem, turns a half century old in June 2017. This book shows what is the occupation, why has it lasted so long, and how has it transformed the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?
Struggle and Survival in Palestine/Israel, Paperback (August 2012)
Too often, the study of Israel/Palestine has focused on elite actors and major events. This title offers defying typical definitions of Israelis and Palestinians, and redefines how we understand both struggle and survival in a troubled region.
