Being Israeli: The Dynamics of Multiple Citizenship

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Being Israeli is one of the most important studies on the Zionist-Israeli state building endeavor to have been published internationally for years." American Journal of Sociology

"Broad, sweeping, and insightful... the author's analysis...effectively explores the issues underlying many of Israel's social problems. The attempt to construct an alternative model of Israeli society is particularly provocative and worthy of serious evaluation." Choice

"While undoubtedly there will be many disagreements about specific suggestions and proposals that Shafir and Peled make in this book, the fact that they introduce new terms by which to rethink Israeli citizenship makes this book an essential reading for those who are concerned with the Israeli-Palestine question as well [as] those who are interested to see how thinking through citizenship may change inflections on seemingly intractable political problems." Canadian Journal of Sociology Online

"This book is full of rich information and is well organized by an appropriate conceptual scheme." Perspectives on Politics
