Israel is a place of paradoxes, a small country with a diverse population and complicated social terrain. Studying its culture and social life means confronting a multitude of ethical dilemmas and methodological challenges. The first-person accounts by anthropologists engage contradictions of religion, politics, identity, kinship, racialization, and globalization to reveal fascinating and often vexing dimensions of the Israeli experience. Caught up in pressing existential questions of war and peace, social justice, and national boundaries, the contributors explore the contours of Israeli society as insiders and outsiders, natives and strangers, as well as critics and friends.

A collection of first-person accounts . . . [of the] contradictions of religion, politics, identity, kinship, racialization, and globalization in the fascinating and often vexing dimensions of the Israeli experience.Summer 2014 * Jewish Book World *
[I]ntroduces readers to a variety of ethnographic settings that are not often part of discussions about Israel.March 2015 * H-Judaic *

Ethnographic Encounters offers outstanding ethnography, persuasively close to its subject but at the same time posing wider themes and questions vital to Israel and to the practice of anthropology in an intensely "edgy" contemporary society.
