Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This penetrating and timely study by two well-known scholars offers a theoretically informed account of the political sociology of Israel. The argument is set in its historical context as the authors trace Israel's development from the beginning of Zionist settlement in Palestine in the early 1880s to the Oslo accords in 1993, and finally to the recent Palestinian uprising. Against this background, they speculate on the idea of citizenship and what it means to be the citizen of a fragmented and ideologically divided society.

Book News Annotation:

Shafir (sociology, U. of California at San Diego, USA) and Peled (political science, Tel Aviv U., Israel) argue that the history of Israel is the history of the conflict between three partly contradictory political goals and commitments: colonialism, ethno-nationalism, and liberal democracy. They view the development of Israeli citizenship as a process of evolution from a colonial frontier to a civil society, seeing the latest period of Israeli history (1977 to the present) as one characterized by a partial and halting decolonization otherwise known as the peace process. Exploring the way citizenship has been defined, they offer hope that Israel can move towards a civil society that views women, European immigrants, and Palestinians as equal members of society.

Synopsis:

The authors speculate on the relationship between identity and citizenship in Israel.

Synopsis:

Two well-known authors speculate on the relationship between identity and citizenship in Israeli society, exploring the differential rights accorded different social strata and what it means to be an Israeli. Their analysis demonstrates that, despite ongoing tensions, globalization and economic liberalization have transformed Israel from a frontier society to one more oriented towards peace and private profit. While their conclusions offer some encouragement for the future of this troubled region, the Israeli position towards the peace process has inevitably been undermined by the tug-of-war between proponents of the liberal and ethno-nationalist citizenship.
