The Booklet and the Book on Going to Jail

According to INN

A booklet put out by an anti-Zionist hareidi-religious sect is making the rounds of hareidi-religious neighborhoods in Jerusalem. The booklet urges young hareidi men to go to jail rather than to join the army, and assures them that jail is probably not as bad as they believe.

The 44-page booklet opens with an explanation of the history of hareidi-religious non-enlistment, and the legal issues that have led to attempts to require hareidi men to enlist for the first time in generations.

But I have seen the book:

Issurei HaMelech.

One page of the contents:

The book is over 300 pages long but does not explicitly, as far as I could tell by a brief page-turner, relate to the controversy over IDF induction.
