About the Author

Alisa Rubin Peled is Lecturer in the Department of Public Policy and Administration at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.


"Peled discusses a very important topic-the Islamic movement in Israel-and relates it to the wider topic of Islamic movements in the Arab world. This is essential reading in the study of Arab-Jewish relations in Israel, and also contributes to the scholarship on majority-minority relations in ethnically divided societies." - Mohammed Abu-Nimer, author of Dialogue, Conflict Resolution, and Change: Arab-Jewish Encounters in Israel
