The land of Israel has been the subject of imagination for millennia. The burgeoning of academic study of Israel over the past generation has led to a profusion of insights into differences between the reality of contemporary Israel and how it is widely perceived. Unfortunately, these have not reached beyond the universities. The essays in this volume present what scholars have learned about various facets of modern Israel, including its population, history, culture, gender roles, and relationship to world Jewry.
