Religion, Democracy and Israeli Society illuminates critical aspects in the study of religion and politics by focusing on religion and politics in one society; the state of Israel.
It outlines the major issues involved in the study of religion and politics and then deals with the impact of political culture on religion and religion on political culture; the problems which religion raises for a democratic society and the need for religion to unify society; the problematics involved in attempting to operationalize the vision of a religious state; and the consequences of religious fundamentalism for the political system.
