Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over the last quarter century, a radical demographic, economic and political transformation has been taking place from within Israel. Israelis are beginning to ask some fundamental questions about the country they live in and what it means to be an Israeli. This book, written by five Israeli academics, probes the changing nature of Israeli society over the last twenty-five years. It considers the deep rifts in that society caused by ethnic, cultural, class and religious divide. It looks at political and economic changes and how privatization has undermined the welfare state. It questions the role of the military in the light of the wider social and economic changes. Finally, and crucially, it asks whether new political initiatives can offer a realistic alternative to the inadequacies of recent governments. This is an informative account of Israel's recent past and the challenges it faces in the twenty-first century.

Book News Annotation:

As part of The World Since 1980 series from Cambridge U. Press, this book examines recent demographic, social, economic and political progress in Israel, focusing on how the majority of these changes were initiated directly from its citizens. Ben-Porat, Levy, Mizrahi, Naor and Tzfadia are noted Israeli social scientists, and they offer articles which explore such topics as how growing privatization is transforming the welfare state, and the changing role of the military within these economic shifts. Written for global studies students who may not have previous knowledge of the inner workings of Israel, this book also addresses new political initiatives that are attempting to erase the financial mistakes of the past.
