If at First You Don’t Succeed

Military Functioning after CSR
  • Zahava Solomon
Part of the Springer Series on Stress and Coping book series (SSSO)


Israel has the dubious distinction of probably being the only democratic country in the world where men serve in the army for 6 long years: 3 in regular service between the ages of 18 and 21, then about 3 more parcelled out in annual reserve duty periods of 1 to 2 months until they are 55. The legal requirement to serve has been imposed to enable the country to meet the unceasing (thus far) threat to its security with the extremely limited manpower at its disposal. There are almost no exemptions. Students can be called up in midsemester, dentists summoned from their private practices, and clerks called out of government offices.
