Militarism and Israeli society by Gabriel Sheffer( )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Often, the classic theory of civil-military relations are insufficient when trying to comprehend the Israeli case. The essays within this book challenge that the civilian sector in Israel has maintained its predominance over the security sector since the state's independence in 1948. They provide a deeper and more nuanced view of the actual situation and also throw light on the formal and informal arrangements, connections, and dynamic relations between Israel's security sector, and the country's civilian sector to include the cultural sphere, the political system, society, the economy, and the public discourse. Issues and events discussed are Israel's separation barrier, the impact of Israel's military confrontations with the Palestinians and other Middle Eastern states, and the impact of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The Israeli case offers insights about the role of the military and security in democratic nations in contemporary times
The Lebanese army : a national institution in a divided society by Oren Barak( )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on the emergence, decline, and reconstruction of the Lebanese Army in order to explain the causes for Lebanon's weakness, 'failure', and resuscitation in recent decades. It examines the Lebanese Army as a major arena for coexistence and conflict among the major sectors of Lebanese society (communities, large families, and geographical regions); the different roles that the army had played in and out of politics since independence; and its efforts to promote the process of state formation in Lebanon"--Page xi
Nonstate actors in intrastate conflicts( )

9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intrastate conflicts, such as civil wars and ethnic confrontations, are the predominant form of organized violence in the world today. But internal strife can destabilize entire regions, drawing in people living beyond state borders--particularly those who share ideology, ethnicity, or kinship with one of the groups involved. These nonstate actors may not be enlisted in formal armies or political parties, but they can play a significant role in a conflict. For example, when foreign volunteers forge alliances with domestic groups, they tend to attract other foreign interventions and may incite the state to centralize its power. Diasporan populations, depending on their connection to their homeland, might engage politically through financial support or overt aggression, either exacerbating or mitigating the conflict. Nonstate Actors in Intrastate Conflicts takes an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the ways external individuals and groups become entangled with volatile states and how they influence the outcome of hostilities within a country's borders. Editors Dan Miodownik and Oren Barak bring together top scholars to examine case studies in Afghanistan, Lebanon, Israel/Palestine, and Turkey in order to explore the manifold roles of external nonstate actors. By shedding light on these overlooked participants--whose causes and consequences can turn the tide of war--Nonstate Actors in Intrastate Conflicts provides a critical new perspective on the development and neutralization of civil war and ethnic violence
Israel's security networks : a theoretical and comparative perspective by Gabriel Sheffer( Book )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, and particularly after the Israeli-Arab War of 1967, a highly informal but simultaneously potent security network has influenced Israel's domestic sphere. Composed of acting and former security personnel and their partners in the state's various civilian spheres, this security network has affected Israeli culture, politics, society, economy, public discourse, and foreign relations. This book discusses this major sociopolitical phenomenon and its effects in a comparative and theoretical perspective. First, it defines Israel's security network in a broad theoretical and comparative perspective. Second, it explains how Israel's security network emerged and acquired a hegemonic position in the area of national security and foreign policy. Third, it describes the security network and identifies its members. Fourth, it discusses and explains the multitude of roles that Israel's security network has come to play both domestically and externally. Fifth, it discusses similar phenomena in other relevant cases. Finally, it presents general analytical and theoretical conclusions"--
