Anthropology and Political Science

What can anthropology and political science learn from each other? The authors argue that collaboration, particularly in the area of concepts and methodologies, is tremendously beneficial for both disciplines, though they also deal with some troubling aspects of the relationship. Focusing on the influence of anthropology on political science, the book examines the basic assumptions the practitioners of each discipline make about the nature of social and political reality, compares some of the key concepts each field employs, and provides an extensive review of the basic methods of research that "bridge" both disciplines: ethnography and case study. Through ethnography (participant observatio...

Israeli Visions and Divisions

  • Publisher: Routledge

This finely etched, on-site work examines the relationships between the changing political system and political culture in Israel, with particular focus on the decade of the 1980s. Written by a scholar equally at home in the United States and in Israel, and intellectually equally at home in political science and anthropology, Israeli Visions and Divisions is a fundamental contribution to a literature long on passion and short on reason, which perhaps is an academic reflection of social life in this deeply troubled land.Aronoff starts from the belief that the basic conflicting and even contradictory interpretations over what should be the exact character of Israel as a Jewish state continues ...

The Spy Novels of John Le Carré

Aronoff (anthropology and political science, Rutgers U.) examines the fictional world of le Carre, relating it to the real world of politics and espionage. His analysis focuses on the ethical dilemmas that confront citizens, particularly of democracies, when their states engage in espionage. He also draws parallels between the self-parody of le Carre and that of 17th-century Dutch artist Jan Steen, and explains how it expresses a distinctive form of ambiguous moralism. This is a paperbound reprint of a 1999 work. c. Book News Inc.

Cross-Currents in Israeli Culture and Politics

This fourth volume of Political Anthropology is the first in the series to be devoted entirely to a single country. Israel is currently undergoing a critical stage of transition in its development. The election of the first Likud government in 1977 ended fifty years of Labor dominance of the political system. It in-troduced new personalities, policies, symbols, and myths as it attempted to establish the legitimacy of the new regime. The 1981 election, which maintained the Likud rule, was the closest and one of the most violent in Israeli history; and one in which political and ethnic tensions reached an unprecedented peak. The election in 1984 will determine considerably more than just which...
