New edition of a classic and highly controversial book that examines the history and consequences of Jewish fundamentalism in Israel. It is essential reading for anyone who wants a full understanding of the way religious extremism has affected the political development of the modern Israeli state. Written by an Israeli peace activist and an American scholar, the book places the assassination of Prime Minister Rabin in the context of a traditon of punishments and killings of those Jews perceived to be heretics. The authors conclude that Jewish fundamentalism is essentially hostile to democracy.
