Summary: An in-depth study of the Israeli-Arabs and their place in Israeli society. This book was published at a moment of extreme tension, indeed a deep crisis, between the State of Israel and its increasingly hostile Arab minority, which makes up 20% of its population. No longer "torn between their people and their country", since making their decision in the last decades to align with the former to the detriment of the latter, they now reflect by themselves all the vitriol, hatred and scorn that any Arab party has ever dated to express toward the Jews, Zionism and Israel. The author explains not only the genesis of this uneasy relationship which accompanied Israel since its inception, but also outlines the development of the process which pushed the Arab guest minority to defy – with growing impertinence, the host majority's very hegemony in the state; to the point of challenging the dominant Jewish culture and the prevailing Zionist ethos and demanding that the state renounce its Jewish tenure and adopt a novel bi-national character.
