Is Israel One?: Religion, Nationalism, and Multiculturalism Confounded
This book delves into Israeli society where internal divides have emerged from divergent value systems in a context of powerful globalization, immigrant-society behavior, and a sharp majority-minority division. A short but hectic experience, Jewish nationalism draws its vitality from reformulations of ancestral symbols which permeate the dynamics of the confrontations of the dominant culture and numerous parties, all contesting its exigencies. Israel's conflicts revolve around this issue, forming a unique dynamic of multiple interacting forces of convergence and divergence. This case raises several major questions about the sociology of multiculturalism.
