The purpose of the book is to attract wide readership and experts’ attention to little researched in Russian literature on Israeli studies themes related to the history and modern development of the State of Israel. Chronological frames of this publication cover a long historical period from the time of pre-state development of Palestine by the Jews (beg. of 20th cent.) till the latest events of internal and external policy of Israel (up to the end of 2014). The articles are marked by interdisciplinary approach and complexity in dealing with the problems of various analytical researches in Israeli studies. Such extensive historical coverage became possible due to the two particularities of the book. Firstly, the range of problems and general directions of the researches by the Department of Israel and Jewish communities (Institute of Oriental Studies, RAS) allowed to include in the academic circulation new topics and little studied documents and facts. Secondly, the choice of the authors (Russian and Israeli) made it possible to compile this book of the articles on little researched problems of historical roots of Israel and to reveal the most important events of its contemporary history. The book comprises two parts: historical (“Historical landmarks of 20th cent.”) and modern (“Special features of Israel modern development in 21st cent.”).
