A review of the book, The Jewish State: A Century Late by Alan Dowty is presented. Dowty's book is a tour de force in its presentation of issues relevant to Israeli politics. He surveys Israel's cultural heritage from its Jewish past and traces its rough-and-tumble style of politics to a combination of Jewish culture, the British Mandate and more recent experiences. He describes Israel's management of its economic and security problems, ethnic rivalries and secular-religious tensions among Jews. He devotes lengthy chapters to a description, explanation and assessment of Jews' relations with non-Jews in a Jewish state, and the impact on Israeli society and polity of the military occupation of the West Bank and Gaza from 1967 until the onset of the Oslo peace process.
