Tel-Aviv, the First Century brings together a broad range of disciplinary approaches and cutting-edge research to trace the development and paradoxes of Tel-Aviv as an urban center and a national symbol. Through the lenses of history, literature, urban planning, gender studies, architecture, art, and other fields, these essays reveal the place of Tel-Aviv in the life and imagination of its diverse inhabitants. The careful and insightful tracing of the development of the city's urban landscape, the relationship of its varied architecture to its competing social cultures, and its evolving place in Israel's literary imagination come together to offer a vivid and complex picture of Tel-Aviv as a microcosm of Israeli life and a vibrant modern global city.

About the Author:

S. Ilan Troen is Stoll Family Professor of Israel Studies and Director of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University.

Review:

The essays are stimulating and original. (Canadian Jewish News)

This volume encompasses a wide range of disciplinary approaches and the latest research on the essence of Tel Aviv. Israel's main metropolis is scrutinized through the lens of history, geography, architecture, art, literature, and gender studies, presenting the many facets that have come to constitute the elaborate personality of a very complicated city and society. This is by all means a much-needed volume, and required reading for any student of Tel Aviv. (H-Judaic)

Anyone who loves Tel Aviv, a 'hybrid of East and West; myth and reality', will want to own this book. It is a must for all academic collections dealing with Israel Studies and for most Jewish high schools and synagogues. This reader highly recommends this rich book. (AJL Reviews)

A splendid critical celebration of Tel-Aviv's first hundred years, this collection of essays reads like a spirited conversation across academic disciplines and across ideologies. (Jewish Book Council)

This is a learned and engaging collection of essays that will be of much interest to scholars, students,
and readers. Due to the wide range of articles within the volume, it will also be extremely useful in undergraduate classes and graduate seminars on Israeli history, urban studies, and cultural studies. (Religious Studies Review)
