This is the first book in English to examine the Mizrahi Jews
(Jews from the Muslim world) in Israel, focussing in particular on
social and political movements such as the Black Panthers and SHAS.
The book analyses the ongoing cultural encounter between Zionism
and Israel on one side and Mizrahi Jews on the other. It charts the
relations and political struggle between Ashkenazi-Zionists and the
Mizrahim in Israel from post-war relocation through to the present
The author examines the Mizrahi political struggle and
resistance from early immigration in the 1950s to formative events
such as the 1959 Wadi-As-Salib rebellion in Haifa; the 1970s Black
Panther movement uprising; the ?Ballot Rebellion? of 1977; the
evolution and rise of the SHAS political party as a Mizrahi
Collective in the 1980s, and up to the new radical Mizrahi
movements of the 1990s and present day. It examines a new Mizrahi
discourse which has influenced Israeli culture and academia, and
the nature of the political system itself in Israel.
This book will be of great interest to those involved in Middle
East Studies and Politics, Jewish and Israeli Studies and Race and
