The Road To Power: Herut Party In Israel (suny Series In Israeli Studies)

The political parties have been my principal interest in my studies of Israeli politics. My three previous books focused on the Israel Labor Party (until 1968, known as Mapai: Hebrew acronym for Eretz-Israel Workers Party).l The central research questions posed in these studies were: Who rules in the State of Israel, and how is that rule implemented? My underlying thesis was that political parties constitute the most important political organizations in a democratic state, therefore, a knowledge of their structure and composition is an essential prerequisite for understanding the power structure in such a state.
