Israel: Social Structure and Change is the fullest and most up-to-date book on social and political change in this fascinating country. The book deals with urban and institutional development, the role and the place of the kibbutz today, economic development, income distribution, labor relations, ethnic relationships and problems, the role of women, changes in education, population problems and Arab-Jewish relationships in Israel.
Prominent writers from the United States and Israel?sociologists, political scientists, economists, anthropologists and administrative leaders?have participated in this extensive treatment of Israel's development. Of interest to all those concerned with economic modernization and political and social development, these original essays are packed with incisive analysis in jargon-free language.
