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.
Colin Shindler is Professor Emeritus and Pears Senior Research Fellow at SOAS, the first UK Professor of Israel Studies. He has written seven books including The Rise of the Israeli Right and Israel and the European Left.Derek Penslar
