"Students of the kibbutz and of religious movements will find this study worth their close attention." Walter Hirsch, Shofar
"...a noteworthy contribution to the study of religion and modernization..." American Journal of Sociology
"What makes his contribution particularly unique is that his focus is on the Religious Kibbutz Federation in Israel, a federation that was not only religious, but which also incorportated the central values of Jewish nationalsim and socialism. Moreover, he inverts the usual approach to Orthodoxy by suggesting that traditional Judaism can provide 'vigorous mechanisms for legitimate innovation in response to modernity, as well as limit change'....Fishman deftly characterizes the intellectual processes and forces whereby the very traditions that rail against modernism become modern phenomena by skillfully weaving an array of theoretical arguments and primary data to make his points. Fishman leaves the reader with an appreciation of his command of the historical scholarship." Debra Kaufman, Critical Review
