More About This Title Israelis in Conflict
This book on citizenship and identity in contemporary Israel challenges some of the traditional analytical paradigms prevalent in Israeli social science for the past 50 years. Israelis in Conflict notes that although the state of Israel continues to define itself in terms of a homogeneous political and cultural entity, as the voices and narratives of marginalized groups come to the fore, agencies of state socialization are no longer able to impose an unchallenged state identity or hegemony. The deconstruction of a state-sponsored social identity, whose aim is social cohesion, is here investigated by critical scholars who develop an alternative understanding of this highly dynamic society.
