"Rouhana's book is indispensable for understanding the predicament of Arabs living in a Jewish ethnic state. He writes with rare integrity and impeccable scholarship on an issue that must be addressed before peace will prevail in the Holy Land". -- Meron Benvenisti, former deputy mayor of Jerusalem

What kind of relationship must be built between states and their ethnic minorities in order to avoid intergroup conflict? This fascinating book examines the situation of Arab Palestinian citizens of Israel, analyzing how the Palestinian collective identity has been shaped by social and political forces and how it poses major challenges to Israel's policies, structure, and identity.

Nadim Rouhana, who grew up as a Palestinian in Israel, draws on surveys, interviews, and archival research to examine how the Palestinian identity has evolved in response to Israel's three guiding -- and conflicting -- principles: Israel as a Jewish state, as a democracy, and as a state with deep security needs. He discusses the consequences of Israel's ideology, policy, and practices toward the Arab minority; the effect of major developments in the Arab world, particularly in the Palestinian communities in exile and in the West Bank and Gaza; and the impact of changes within the Palestinian community in Israel such as demography, level of education, socioeconomic structure, and political culture. Arguing that in a multiethnic state, conflict becomes inevitable unless citizenship emerges as a common and equally meaningful identity to the various ethnonational groups, he concludes by exploring the possibilities of negotiating a new and common identity between Israel and its Arab minority.
