"This is not merely another book on education in Israel. Ideology, Policy, and Practice: Education for Immigrants and Minorities in Israel Today is an original and refreshing contribution to research in education - and this is so on several grounds. Above all, it presents a specifically sociological discussion of the Israeli educational system, of which in recent years there have been very few. At the same time it is a tract from the pen of a sociologist who knows her field thoroughly. It is obvious that the author has a wealth of experience both in her academic training as educationist and lecturer as well as in the field of education as a teacher. This book reaches out far beyond the interest of professional educationists. It will serve a great variety of different researchers and readers:
-those who are interested in Israel's policy in respect to the state's general policy towards its minorities;
-those who will profit from Kalekin-Fishman's methods to research the implementation-chain of any value-driven policy;
-those who are interested in questions in the realm of sociology of knowledge;
-those in Western countries whose field of research is multiculturalism or education for immigrants from non-Western cultures."
