Summary
This book uses different methodologies to explore inequality in a number of areas of Israeli society, focusing on Israel's diverse populations and communities. Israel is an interesting case among industrialized countries as the level of inequality is high across a number of measures. The country is extremely divided along ethnic, national, religious, and political lines, producing unique conditions within which the effects of factors such as gender, class, region, age, and education are highly contextualized. Income inequality in Israel is among the highest in the Western world; the poverty rate and income gap between classes are similarly high. The chapters in this volume address different aspects and areas of such inequalities in Israel. Conclusions drawn here expand our knowledge and understanding of the various mechanisms through which inequality is produced and maintained in Israel as well as the role that state policies play in minimizing or increasing the impact of these mechanisms
