520    "The Political Psychology of Israeli Prime Ministers This 
       book examines leaders of the seemingly intractable 
       conflict between Israel and its Palestinian neighbors. It 
       takes as an intellectual target of opportunity six Israeli
       prime ministers, asking why some of them have persisted in
       some hard-line positions but others have opted to become 
       peacemakers. This book argues that some leaders do change,
       and above all it explains why and how such changes come 
       about. This book goes beyond arguing simply that "leaders 
       matter" by analyzing how their particular belief systems 
       and personalities can ultimately make a difference to 
       their country's foreign policy, especially toward a long-
       standing enemy. Although no hard-liner can stand 
       completely still in the face of important changes, only 
       those with ideologies that have specific components that 
       act as obstacles to change and who have an orientation 
       toward the past may need to be replaced for dramatic 
       policy changes to take place"--|cProvided by publisher
