A history of modern Israel by Colin Shindler( )

48 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The state of Israel came into existence in 1948. Colin Shindler's book traces Israel's history across sixty years, from its optimistic beginnings--immigration, settlement, the creation of its towns and institutions--through the wars with its Arab neighbors, and the confrontation with the Palestinians. Shindler paints a broad canvas which affords unusual insights into this multicultural society, forged from over a hundred different Jewish communities and united by a common history. Despite these commonalities, however, Israel in the twenty-first century is riven by ideological disputes and different interpretations of 'Jewishness' and Judaism. Nowhere are these divisions more revealingly portrayed than in the lives and ideologies of Israel's leaders. Biographical portraits of Ben Gurion, Israel's first prime-minister, Yitzhak Rabin, whose assassination is still a traumatic memory for many Israelis, and the controversial Ariel Sharon, offer fascinating examinations of those who have led the country to where it is today.--From the publisher
The triumph of military Zionism : nationalism and the origins of the Israeli right by Colin Shindler( )

36 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 2,129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The move to the right in Israel is often seen as a reaction to the violence and uncompromising nationalism of the Middle Eastern conflict, but this view is far too simplistic. How and why did Israel change from a much admired state based on pioneering egalitarianism and 'making the desert bloom'? This book uncovers the origins of this shift."

Ploughshares into swords? : Israelis and Jews in the shadow of the Intifada by Colin Shindler( Book )

11 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book traces Israel's transformation from a pioneering collective into its troubled present state. It examines the effect that the Palestinian problem has had on the Israeli state and its society. The book explores the nature of Zionist radicalism and shows how it was strengthened by the opposition to the Camp David accord, and the polemics that have raged over the territory captured during the Six-Day War. The book also analyzes the relationship between Israel and Diaspora, the effect on this of the Intifada and the Israeli reaction to it, and the possible consequences in this area of Yasser Arafat's support of Saddam Hussein."--Bloomsbury Publishing
Israel and the world powers : diplomatic alliances and international relations beyond the Middle East by Colin Shindler( )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Israel's relations - or lack of them - with Muslim countries throughout the Middle East and the Islamic world are subject to repeated analysis and scrutiny in both the media and academia. But what have previously been less examined are Israel's relationships with the rest of world: from the former colonial states of Britain and France to the superpowers of the US and Russia and to emerging and regional powers such as China, India and Brazil. Conventionally seen as a state isolated from its Arab neighbours and irrevocably allied with the US, Israel is examined here in the light of its efforts t
The rise of the Israeli right : from Odessa to Hebron by Colin Shindler( Book )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text traces the history of the Israeli Right since its inception and its struggle to gain power. It looks at the political ideas that are its bedrock and how it has been the dominant force in Israeli politics for nearly four decades. This book traces the history of the Israeli Right since its inception and its struggle to gain power. It looks at the political ideas that are its bedrock and how it has been the dominant force in Israeli politics for nearly four decades. The Israeli Right first came to power nearly four decades ago. Its election was described then as 'an earthquake', and its reverberations are still with us. How then did the Right rise to power? What are its origins? Colin Shindler traces this development from the birth of Zionism in cosmopolitan Odessa in the nineteenth century to today's Hebron, a centre of radical Jewish nationalism. He looks at central figures such as Vladimir Jabotinsky, an intellectual and founder of the Revisionist movement and Menahem Begin, the single-minded politician who brought the Right to power in 1977. Both accessible and comprehensive, this book explains the political ideas and philosophies that were the Right's ideological bedrock and the compromises that were made in its journey to government
The Hebrew republic : Israel's return to history by Colin Shindler( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book relates individual episodes from the saga of Israel instead of narrating a formal, conventional history up to the present day. Each section deals with a different aspect of this journey through the decades. The subjects do not cover old ground and are intentionally revelatory as they relate the history of Israel in a vivid, engaging way"--
The land beyond promise : Israel, Likud and the Zionist dream by Colin Shindler( Book )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A critical appraisal of the Likud government's rule from 1977-1992. The different ideological origins of both Begin and Shamir are examined as well as how they were influenced by pre-war nationalist models in Pilsudski's Poland and Mussolini's Italy. Exploring Begin's involvement with revisionist Zionism since 1931 and his lifelong struggle to extend Israel's sovereignty, the book focuses on such key issues as Begin's election victory, his rationale for invading Lebanon in 1982 and his invocation of the Holocaust in political debate. Looking at Shamir's political background from his days in the Stern Group through to his sudden return to party politics, Shindler explains why he was able to hold on to power for so long, and looks at his confrontation with the Bush Administration."--Bloomsbury Publishing
