Featured Title: Israeli Statecraft

Yehezekel Dror is one of Israel’s leading authorities on public policy, having won the Israel Prize for Management in 2005. He has served as an adviser to think tanks and to the Israeli government, as well as recently being appointed as member of the Winograd Commission on the Second Lebanon War, as reported by Yonatan Touval in the January 2012 edition of Haaretz. It therefore comes as no surprise that his recently published book is a compelling work, offering a fascinating insight into Israeli national security challenges and responses.

In Israeli Statecraft, Dror offers a systematic examination, analysis and evaluation of Israeli national security statecraft in terms of challenges and responses. It is an important volume for anyone concerned with the future of Israel, as well as those interested in Dror’s argument that the state is able to advance the happiness and welfare of its citizens. He provides a persuasive argument for the undeniable need for peace in the region, and concludes by putting forward a convincing step-by-step approach to be followed rather than simply waiting for peace to occur.

The strengths of Dror’s work have been highlighted in a recent review by Yonatan Touval in the Book Reviews section of Haaretz, which can be viewed in full here. Describing Dror as ‘scrupulously rigorous, boldly visionary and refreshingly blasphemous’, Touval recommends Israeli Statecraft as ‘necessary reading for anyone for whom the future of Israel is important.’
