"Helman, Haklai, and Spruyt’s edited book is a major contribution to our understanding of domestic politics’ role in International Relations (IR), particularly democratic peace theory. Taking Israel as an instance of what A. Lipjhart called a "deviant case," contributors to this volume persuasively show that Israel’s democratic institutions, identity politics, and leadership hinder peace. The book’s main achievement, indeed its main appeal, therefore, consists in showing the conditions under which democracies fail to solve conflict peacefully, and more generally, in promoting a reinvigorated debate on democratic peace theory"—Emanuel Adler, Andrea and Charles Bronfman Chair of Israeli Studies and Professor of Political Science University of Toronto

"Deals with a very charged issue using a balanced tone. . . . The book makes a valuable and important contribution to a topic usually studied with strong political zeal rather than cool academic analysis."—Maoz Rosenthal, Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy, Interdisciplinary Center, Herzliya
