about

This new and original study focuses on the growing politicization and radicalization of the Arab minority within Israel-excluding the Israeli-administered territories-from 1967 to the present day. Professor Landau has studied both written and oral sources to produce a scholarly analysis of the diverse political views and attitudes of Muslims, Christians, and Druzes in Israel. As well as analysing the views of intellectuals and politicians, he examines trends among the general Arabpopulation in Israel, looking in particular at political behaviour and struggles, organizations, problems of identity, electoral trends, education, language, and literature. His wide-ranging examination draws out the strategies developed by Israeli Arabs to deal with the conflicting demands of the State of Israel and Arab nationalism. Professor Landau's aim is to encourage an objective and balanced approach to the issues and he concludes with some far-reachingproposals to improve Jewish-Arab relations.
Jacob M. Landau is a Gersten Professor of Political Science at Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Editorial Reviews

`Landau's book is essentially descriptive and might well be considered to fall into the category of modernizationist ... Landau's book contains some interesting data and some useful profiles.'British Journal of Middle Eastern Studies
