About the Authors
  • This is an ethnographic account of the Palestinian citizens of Israel. Dr. Rabinowitz has written widely on the current political situation in Israel, and here investigates situations of friction, conflict and cooperation in the new town of Natzerat Illit just outside Nazareth. Using case studies and biographical accounts, the author provides a major contribution to our understanding of confrontation in this area, offers a powerful critique of reflexive anthropology, and original insights into ideas of ethnicity and identity, nationalism and liberalism.

    • A vivid ethnography which deals with some of the fundamental ingredients of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict
    • Highlights the shortcomings of liberalism as a guide to action
    • A candid look at the oxymoronic dilemmas and paradoxes of anthropology and ethnographic work
