Content Description
Governing Jerusalem : again on the world's agenda by Ira Sharkansky( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rather than focus on what might happen, the book explains the city's governance by viewing, the period since 1967 against events and emotions much older. Two chapters survey the city's history from biblical times to the present. Subsequent chapters describe the institutions of Israeli government that are relevant to the city; the social, economic, and political setting in which governance occurs; and the style and substance of policymaking. The final chapter evaluates the quality of contemporary governance, explains issues that are prominent on agendas of one or another interested party, and offers alternative scenarios of what might occur
The political economy of Israel by Ira Sharkansky( Book )

8 editions published between 1986 and 2017 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The resurgence of political economy as an important topic reflects the deep interpenetration of politics and economics. There are few economic issues of consequence that are not shaped by government decisions, and there are few governments whose agendas are not dominated by economic issues. No country reflects the interpenetration of politics and economics as much as Israel.In this analysis, Ira Sharkansky examines the extensive involvement of the Israeli government in the country's economy, reflected in governmental expenditures that exceed the gross national product, intimate links between governmental activity and Israeli's standard of living, high inflation and other economic problems, and policymaking behaviors that include entrepreneurialism and indirection. He explores the strategic points of Israel's political economy, pursuing a qualitative analysis of Israeli problems and strategies for dealing with them. Those interested in policy analysis, political economy, comparative politics, comparative public administration, and Israeli politics will find this book invaluable.Contents: The Political Economy of Israel; What is the Israeli State? How Large is the Government Budget?; Israel's Standard of Living; Israeli Municipalities: Local Initiative amidst Central Controls; Who Gets What amidst High Inflation? Winners and Losers in the Israeli Budget 1978-1984; Conundrums of Israel's Political Economy: Problems without Solutions; Public Sector Entrepreneurialism; Policymaking by Indirection; Perspective on Israel's Political Economy."--Provided by publisher

Politics and policymaking : in search of simplicity by Ira Sharkansky( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Social scientists have constructed elaborate theories involving policymakers as rational actors and purporting to predict and explain policy outcomes. In contrast, this book paints a picture of policymakers who - coping with the uncertainty of constantly changing constraints - must simplify, taking shortcuts rather than surveying all of their options and pursuing carefully thought-out plans." "Sharkansky draws on wide-ranging examples to illustrate the conditions that make simplification the necessary constituent of political life as well as the various ways in which policymakers navigate the maze of possibilities they confront. While acknowledging the shortcomings of the approach, he demonstrates that, considered in context, simplifications may in fact be more rational and effective than traditional rational models of decisionmaking."--Jacket
