This important new study of Palestine in the years 1882 to 1948 looks at the formation of the Jewish working class and its pivotal and deliberate role in the forging of a nation. Drawing on historical studies as well as neo-Marxist theory, Professor Ben-Porat adds both empirical information and new critical perspectives to our understanding of class formation and of the unique historical circumstances attendant on the creation of modern Israel.
