Front Cover
Ernest Krausz
Transaction Publishers, Jan 1, 1980 - History - 324 pages

This is the first volume of the publication series of the Israel Sociological Society. The best of Israeli social science is scattered in a very large variety of international journals. The object of this publishing venture is to identify the major themes which occupy social research in Israel and collate published materials which are relevant to each theme. Each volume is introduced by integrative essays.

The contents of this first volume focus on the theme of migration, ethnicity, and community, seeking out the dynamics of conflict and integration in a new society. Topics include the reso-cialization of immigrants, the conflicts arising from ethnic disparities, and the problems of development towns.

A special feature of the volume is a comprehensive bibliography of published materials on Israeli society, covering the ten-year period from the late 1960s.
