Description

The three shots fired at Israel's prime minister, Yitzhak Rabin, on the night of November 4, 1995, were a blow to Israel's social body. Fifteen contributors from a range of disciplinary viewpoints - historical, psychological, anthropological, political, and cultural - survey the various reactions to the assassination and analyze its ramifications and repercussions. The assassination showed how easy it is for religious fundamentalists to ignore democratic rules and how militant nationalists will resort to violence to prevent the surrender of parts of the Holy Land. Paradoxically, the reaction to the assassination also revealed Israel's growing desire to pursue the peace process, and less than four years later, the Israelis restored Rabin's successors to government, to continue in his path. Will Israeli society develop into a Western democratic model, or will it become a reactionary, ethnocentric, xenophobic backwater? This volume does not propose definitive answers, but reflects thoughtfully and knowledgeably on them.
