"A Jewish and democratic state" reconsidered.
Can Israel be both Jewish and democratic? "Transformative Justice, " Leora Bilsky's landmark study of Israeli political trials, poses this deceptively simple question. The four trials that she analyzes focus on identity, the nature of pluralism, human rights, and the rule of law-issues whose importance extends far beyond Israel's borders. Drawing on the latest work in philosophy, law, history, and rhetoric, Bilsky exposes the many narratives that compete in a political trial and demonstrates how Israel's history of social and ideological conflicts in the courtroom offers us a rare opportunity to understand the meaning of political trials. The result is a bold new perspective on the politics of justice and its complex relationship to the values of liberalism. Leora Bilsky is Professor of Law, Tel Aviv University.

The Armenian presence in the Holy Land can be traced back to Christianity's first centuries. The first monastery there was established by an Armenian, St. Euthymius. It has been prominent and sustained through all the vicissitudes of this stormy country and the Armenian Quarter is an integral and distinctive part of Jerusalem's Old City today. This long history has created an unique form of Armenian life and language. The Armenians in Jerusalem and the Holy Land assembles essays by the world's leading authorities on numerous aspects of this ancient, richly traditional community. (source: Nielsen Book Data)

'This accessible but deeply disturbing book is not only the most authoritative study of the Israeli State to date, but also a significant contribution to state theory and globalisation ...A masterpiece.' Ronen Palan, Professor of International Political Economy, University of Sussex. 'A 'Must' read for anyone interested in the debate about globalization and its discontents.' Joseph H.H. Weiler, Jean Monnet Professor of Law, NYU School of Law 'Undoubtedly the most riveting and outstanding political-economy book you would have read this year.' Globe Over the past century, Israel has been transformed from an agricultural colony, to a welfare-warfare state, to a globally integrated "market economy" characterised by great income disparities. What lies behind this transformation? In order to understand capitalist development, argue Bichler and Nitzan, we need to break the artificial separation between "economics" and "politics", and think of accumulation itself as "capitalisation of power". Applying this concept to Israel, they reveal the big picture that never makes it to the news. Diverse processes - such as regional conflicts and energy crises, ruling class formation and dominant ideology, militarism and dependency, inflation and recession, the politics of high-technology and the transnationalisation of ownership - are all woven into a single story. The result is a fascinating account of one of the world's most volatile regions. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
