Summary

Examines street demonstrations from 1980 through 1984.

“In the past few years, it almost appears that protesting against the government has replaced working for it as the primary occupation of Jerusalem’s residents. As the nation’s capital, and home to the country’s largest ultra-Orthodox community, the city is a natural focus for street demonstrations. As a result, Jerusalem has been the unhappy witness to a national rise in the number of public political activities. Wolfsfeld has been studying the Israeli proclivity for shouting in the streets. Wolfsfeld’s research encompasses 423 street demonstrations from 1980 through 1984, and his conclusions both confirm and confound expectations.” — The Jerusalem Post - International Edition

“This book blends comprehensiveness with methodological rigor, unusually rich data, and a very straightforward presentation. In addition, its theoretical/conceptual orientation is both novel and grounded in sound testing with extensive data. The inclusion of both individual and collective behaviors is a feature almost never found in participation studies, and this one does so with remarkable ease in assembling relevant data and presenting it in a clearly categorized framework. Moreover, it is well written and almost completely devoid of padding and jargon.” — Marilyn Hoskin

Gadi Wolfsfeld is in the Department of Political Science and the Department of Communication at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
