Israel and its Palestinian Citizens: Ethnic Privileges in the Jewish State
Based on historical foundations, the book by Dr. Nadim Rouhana examines the approach in which Israel institutionalizes ethnic privileging among its nationally diverse citizens. Contributors to this book discuss the paradoxes of democratic claims in ethnic states, and the dynamics of social conflict in the absence of equality. This book advances a new understanding of Israel’s approach to its Palestinian citizens, covers the broadest range of areas in which Jew and Arabs are institutionally differentiated along an ethnic basis, and clarifies the psychopolitical foundations of ethnic privileges.
