An analysis of Arab Israeli integration into the State of Israel, probing the conflicts of identity that the minority feels and comparing it historically to developments in Arab countries. Stendel (former deputy to the Prime Minister's Advisor on Arab Affairs) draws the political map of the Arab minority in Israel bringing it into focus by synthesizing demographic trends, geographic distribution, the configuration of the religious communities, social conditions, and the status of women. By examining Arabic-language literature, the press, and the relations of Israeli Arabs with the PLO, readers are given a complete portrayal of cultural identity in conflict with the realities of political and ideological policies. Paper edition (unseen), $24.95. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
