The Political Worlds of Jerusalem's People: A Study of the Political Orientations and Cultural Backgrounds of Traditional, Transitional, and Modern Types in Jerusalem

By Leonard Fein

Michigan State University, 1962

Leonard Fein explores the cultural, traditional and religious backgrounds and three different classifications of Israelis, traditionals, transitionals, and moderns. Due to the unique circumstances of the formation of the Israeli State, Fein investigates the homogeneity and heterogeneity of thought on issues of politics and democracy. As Israel is simultaneously dedicated to the Jewish people but also to modern ideals of western democracy, it deals with unique cultural cleavages and issues.
