 The Politics of Regime Structure Reform in Democracies: Israel in Comparative and Theoretical Perspective
Rahat G. The Politics of Regime Structure Reform in Democracies: Israel in Comparative and Theoretical Perspective. Albany: State University of New York Press; 2008. Publisher's VersionAbstract

This book examines the success or failure of initiatives aimed at reforming regime structures in democracies, particularly their electoral and government systems. Through a comparative analysis of the several attempts at this type of reform in Israel over more than four decades, Gideon Rahat begins with the failed attempts at electoral reform in the 1970s and 1980s. He then analyzes Israel’s successful attempt at promoting government system reform from 1988 to 1992. Finally, he compares the Israeli cases to cases of electoral reform in New Zealand, Japan, and Italy in the 1990s. While the book focuses on the Israeli cases, it places Israel within a comparative framework and makes an important contribution to the debate concerning the politics behind regime structure reform.
