"Like all of Baruch Kimmerling's work, this is a penetrating and provocative book. It offers a new paradigm for the current and future direction of Israeli society that will certainly become a central point of reference in the field. Kimmerling's explanation for the rise and fall of classic Labor Zionism is a seminal contribution to the ongoing debate over this central thread of the Israeli experience."—Alan Dowty, author of The Jewish State: A Century Later

"Baruch Kimmerling is an influential and controversial scholar whose books have set the agenda for contemporary Israel Studies. The
Invention and Decline of Israeliness
offers an original and provocative interpretation of the formation and transformation of Israeli national identity. Anyone seriously interested in Israeli society should read this book."—Derek Penslar, author of Shylock's Children: Economics and Jewish Identity in Modern Europe
