Synopsis: In this sharply argued volume, Orit Rozin reveals the flaws in the conventional account of Israeli society in the 1950s, which portrayed the Israeli public as committed to a collectivist ideology. In fact, major sectors of Israeli society espoused individualism and rejected the state-imposed collectivist ideology. Rozin draws on archival, legal, and media sources to analyze the attitudes of black-market profiteers, politicians and judges, middle-class homemakers, and immigrants living in transit camps and rural settlements.

Part of a refreshing trend in recent Israeli historiography to study the voices, emotions, and ideas of ordinary people, Rozin’s book provides an important corrective to much extant scholarly literature on Israel’s early years.

About the Author: ORIT ROZIN is a lecturer in the department of Jewish History at Tel Aviv University.

Book Description Brandeis University Press, Waltham, 2011. Softcover. Condition: New. 276 pages. Softcover. New book. ISRAEL. A provocative history of Israeli society in the 1950s that demonstrates how a voluntarist collectivism gave way to an individualist ethos. In this sharply argued volume, Orit Rozin reveals the flaws in the conventional account of Israeli society in the 1950s, which portrayed the Israeli public as committed to a collectivist ideology. In fact, major sectors of Israeli society espoused individualism and rejected the state-imposed collectivist ideology.

Part of a refreshing trend in recent Israeli historiography to study the voices, emotions, and ideas of ordinary people, Rozin's book provides an important corrective to much extant scholarly literature on Israel's early years. Orit Rozin is a lecturer in the department of Jewish History at Tel Aviv University. "A pioneering work of revisionist history that records and explains the change of consciousness of Israeli society in the 1950s, as voluntarist collectivism gave way to an individualist ethos. Rozin draws aside the veil of state-sponsored rhetoric that concealed the deep divisions within Israeli society, exposes the unspoken realities of quotidian existence, and demonstrates how new immigrants and housewives were agents of change. Rozin traces the process by which liberal values acted as a 'thought virus' that infected and eventually undermined Zionist ideology. This is a major contribution to Israeli social history, to 'the history of emotions' and to the necessary rewriting of the received narrative of Israel's founding years."ÑBernard Wasserstein, University of Chicago "An engaging and innovative study that offers new insights into the transformed social landscape and changing values of post-independence Israel. Exploring social practices and cultural attitudes, Rozin highlights the seeds of a social rift that would come to haunt Israeli society in the following decades . . . a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the intricacy of a critical period in Israeli history."ÑYael Zerubavel, Rutgers University (Key Words: 1950s, Israel, Collectivism, Israeli Studies, Orit Rozin).
