Overview


This book provides the most up-to-date assessment of Israel's society today, portraying the country's ethnic diversity, its economy, and demographic changes. Revealing linkages between demographic transformation and socioeconomic change, Goldscheider shows how ethnic group formation emerged in Israel to create the present mix of Jewish and Arab populations. He also reviews the policies of Palestinian and Israeli governments concerning immigration, describing the ways in which socioeconomic development within Israel, urbanization, and industrialization have evolved through the use of outside capital and increasing dependency.

Booknews
Goldscheider (sociology and Judaic studies, Brown U.) presents a demographic overview of Israeli society. The overarching theme of his study is the conjunction of population processes, ethnicity, and nation-building. The importance of socioeconomic changes for ethnic group formation is stressed and the ecological and ideological aspects of urbanization are explored. Inequalities of distribution of resources, gender roles, and death are examined and their implications are analyzed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
