Summary

This book provides a unique mosaic of the most recent processes and phenomena which explains Israel factually as well as theoretically. It offers a new conceptual framework for analysing the relationships between state and society, contrasting social boundaries with social frontiers. It also discusses the problems that arise when Zionist ideology confronts reality in contemporary Israel.

"It deals with exceedingly important issues scarcely touched by an earlier generation of Israeli social scientists. The topic is central to the study of Israeli society, and the book makes innovative contributions to sociological theory. It represents first-rate scholarship." -- Robert J. Brym, University of Toronto

"There are provocative and insightful notions, and readers will come away with an appreciation both of the complexities of Israeli society and of the difficulty of charting its boundaries and explaining their creation and evolution." -- Mark Tessler, University of Wisconsin

Baruch Kimmerling is Professor at Hebrew University and Director of the Center for the Study and Documentation of Israeli Society.
