Review quote

'In a thoroughly researched and well-argued book Weissbrod takes the reader through major stages in the development of Israeli society and the identity formation of its people. Though the book is professionally sound, it is written in a user-friendly style, thus making it interesting reading not only for expert sociologists and Middle-Eastern scholars ... undergraduate and graduate students, as well as the educated lay reader, [who] will be able to appreciate Dr Weissbrod's analysis.' - Yael Enoch, Head of Sociology Seciton, Open University, Ramat Avivshow more
