Description

This eighth volume in the Studies of Israeli Society series presents a broad array of topics related to the sociology of immigration to Israel. The focus is on immigration and migration during the 1980s and 1990s. The chapters were selected from a list of approximately 450 articles on the subject by Israeli sociologists. The book covers such issues as migrants in the occupational structure; migration and health; formal and informal mechanisms of integration; ethnic identities and processes of integration; and processes of migration and their implications. "Immigration to Israel "opens with two papers written specifically for this volume. The first is a theoretical-historical chapter by the editors. They discuss the role and contribution of Israeli sociologists to the ongoing literature of migration.The second by Sergio DellaPergola, provides a historical and comparative perspective of the underlying demographic characteristics of migration to Israel in the context of global Jewish migration processes. Other chapters and contributors include: "New Entrepreneurs and Entrepreneurial Aspirations among Immigrants from the Former USSR in Israel" by M. Lerner and Y. Hendeles, "New Immigrants as a Special Group in the Israeli Armed Forces" by V. Azarya and B. Kimmerling; "Iranian Ethnicity in Israel" by J. L. Goldstein; "Ethiopian Immigrants in Israel" by S. Kaplan and C. Rosen; 'The Attitudes of Israeli Youth Toward Inter-ethnic and Intra-ethnic Marriage" by R. Shachar; and "Jewish Immigrants from Israel in the United States" by Z. Eisenbach.
