Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Eight studies of population and social change in Israeli society over the past several decades, illustrate the link between demographic shifts and social inequalities. Among the discussions are the demographic and social impact of ethnic-immigrant groups and how that has affected assimilation, and the significance for both Jewish and Arab populations of the recent influx from the former Soviet Union. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
