Federal Systems of the World: A Handbook of Federal, Confederal and Autonomy Arrangements, 2nd rev. ed.
Daniel J. Elazar and the JCPA Staff
Of the over 180 politically sovereign states now in existence, 50 are either federations or include within them forms of self-determination and self-government which represent extensions of the federal principle or applications of the idea of political autonomy. The previous edition of this handbook (1992) represented the first major effort to inventory and describe all known examples of federal and autonomous arrangements, compare their basic features, and classify them by form. This fully updated edition documents the extensive changes in the state system in recent years, including the dramatic events in the former USSR, Germany, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, and the European Community/Union.

This is a pioneering work in the development of the theory of intercommunal relations. Lexington Books, 1984, 190 pp., Hardcover $23 - NS40

Israel

Constitution, Government and Politics

Books

The Constitution of the State of Israel, 1996-5756, 3rd ed.
Daniel J. Elazar, ed.
Although Israel does not have a single complete constitutional document, in its nearly fifty years of statehood the Jewish state has developed an operative constitution of its own, embodied in a set of written texts that reflect the political system on which the state is based, its social content, and an expanding constitutional tradition. Those texts were properly promulgated by the representatives of the people and recognized as constitutional by Israel's Supreme Court. The texts are collected and presented here for what they are - Israel's operative constitution that determines the basic operations of the Israeli polity, the basic rules of governance enforced by those empowered to execute and enforce the law and, as such, interpreted by the courts as a constitution. Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, 1996, 95 pp., separate Hebrew and English editions, Softcover $10 - NS25

Israel and the Middle East

Books

Fundamentalist Islam and Israel: Essays in Interpretation
Raphael Israeli
This book provides an in-depth account and analysis of Islamic fundamentalism today, a powerful religious movement having the most far- reaching goals, and how it has an impact on Israel's relations with the Arab and Islamic worlds. What Professor Israeli has to say is important not only for Israelis, but for the whole Western world, which now confronts revivalist Islam, not only in the Middle East but in Europe itself, and even in such far-flung fragments of European civilization as the united Sates and Australia. While the West has yet to learn how to deal with this movement, this book should be a great help in developing a proper understanding and a proper strategy to do so.JCPA and University Press of America, 1993, 220 pp., Softcover $21.50 - NS64

Moshe Dayan on the Peace Process and the Future of Israel (Hebrew)

The State of Israel, The Land of Israel: The Statist and Ethnonational Dimensions of Foreign Policy
Shmuel Sandler
The impact of the nation in foreign policy is not synonymous with that of the state.

This study examines nation-centered concerns in foreign policy as practiced within Israel. It reviews and analyzes the roots of the territorial dimension in Israeli foreign policy since the establishment of the state up to the present; the impact of Israeli domestic politics; and the rise of ethnonationalism in Israeli foreign policy.

The Political Economy of Israel: From Ideology to Stagnation
Yakir Plessner
This work offers a wide-ranging critique of Israel's socialist economy, seeing Israel's economic problems as due to its departure from the institutions and rules which govern predominantly market economies. Israel's economy has been operating on principles too far from European Liberalism (or American neo-Conservatism) and too close to Socialism. While national imperatives may have been a reason for ignoring economic considerations, ultimately this strategy led to domination of the economy by the government and the systematic exclusion and distrust of private enterprise. As long as the economy is not reformed to create a hospitable climate for private investment, Israel will not be able to extricate itself from economic stagnation. State University of New York Press, 1994, 330 pp. (Order direct from publisher)

Jewish Political Tradition

Books

The Bible and the Western Political Tradition
A four-volume exploration of the Covenant Tradition in Politics by Daniel J. Elazar

Covenant and Polity in Biblical Israel: Biblical Foundations and Jewish Expressions
Volume 1 of The Covenant Tradition in Politics
Daniel J. Elazar
The covenants of the Bible are the founding covenants of Western civilization. They have their beginnings in the need to establish clear and binding relationships between God and humans and among humans. These relationships are primarily political in character in that they were designed to establish lines of authority, distributions of power, and systems of law. This first volume of a four-volume series addresses political uses of the idea of covenant, the tradition that has adhered to that idea, and the political arrangements that flow from it. The volume represents an in-depth exploration of biblical sources of the covenant tradition, its development in Scripture, and subsequently in Jewish history and thought. It traces the interconnections between ideas, culture, and behavior as well as between peoples and generations. Among the topics covered are covenant as a political concept, the Bible as a political commentary, the post-biblical tradition, medieval covenant theory, and Jewish political culture. Transaction Publishers, 1994, 536 pp., $55 - NS165

Covenant and Commonwealth: From Christian Separation Through the Protestant Reformation
Volume 2 of The Covenant Tradition in Politics
Daniel J. Elazar
The second volume on the Covenant Tradition in Politics examines covenant as a political idea and its related political tradition with the culture and behavior that they produced, to focus on the struggle in Europe to produce a Christian covenantal commonwealth, a struggle that climaxed in the Reformed Protestantism of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This Christian adaptation of the biblical tradition, the integration of that adaptation with the traditions of the tribal oath societies of Northern Europe, the perforce limited medieval expressions of that synthesis, and the revival of covenant as the architectonic principle of the Protestant Reformation is an intricate and fascinating story. The book also briefly examines covenant and hierarchy in Islam and other premodern polities. Transaction Publishers, 1996, 400 pp., $50 - NS150

Covenant and Constitutionalism: The Great Frontier and the Matrix of Federal Democracy
Volume 3 of The Covenant Tradition in Politics
Daniel J. Elazar
A century after the Protestant Reformation, the idea of the covenanted commonwealth was transformed into the idea of civil society organized around a political compact and governed by a written constitution consented to by the people it served. This transition took place along both the philosophic track championed by Hobbes, Spinoza, and Locke, which set down the theory and principles of modern democratic and republican civil society, as well as a very practical track pioneered by European settlers from various Reformed Protestant backgrounds - Puritans, Scottish Presbyterians, and Dutch Calvinists - who settled in the New World, most particularly what became first British North America and then the United States, which was established through a synthesis of the ideas of covenant and political compact.

Covenant and Civil Society: The Constitutional Matrix of Modern Democracy
Volume 4 of The Covenant Tradition in Politics
Daniel J. Elazar
As the modern epoch unfolded, certain key institutions of the covenantal tradition scored major successes to become the norm for modern democratic republicanism. These included the idea that political society is a human artifact that humans established for themselves through political compact; the translation of essentially unenforceable medieval theories of constitutionalism into enforceable constitutional systems; the idea of popular sovereignty; and the development of consociational and cooperative forms of political and social organization. This volume is devoted to the exploration of these ideas and institutions, and the struggles to develop them in the Old World, especially in modern and early postmodern Europe.
