The Rise of the Israeli Right

The Israeli Right first came to power nearly four decades ago. Its election was described then as ‘an earthquake’ and its reverberations endure. In The Rise of the Israeli Right, Professor Colin Shindler poses important questions – How did the Right rise to power? What are its origins? – tracing its development from the birth of Zionism to modern times. Professor Derek Penslar chairs.
