Description: "This book is fascinating, enlightening, maddening, and disturbing [but] by the end one feels that Domnguez has, in fact, gotten to the bottom of what she convincingly argues is a condition for the very possibility of Israeli society--namely, the definition of peoplehood. . . . The two key concepts with which she deals throughout are 'culture' and 'ethnicity.' She analyzes newspaper accounts for both content and rhetoric or discourse on these subjects, and in addition, examines 'story-telling events' dealing with the lifestyles and situations of various Jewish minority groups--especially the Orientals or Sephardim--who have been only uneasily accommodated in Israeli society in recent years. 'Nationality' is distinguished both from 'religion' and from 'citizenship' in official Israeli usage, and Domnguez tries to analyze what this means for Israel as a polity, and as a community of persons who, in a cultural sense, have very little in common."--Nancie L. Gonzalez, American Anthropologist
