Perspectives on Ethnic Formation

(p.197) Chapter Ten Perspectives on Ethnic Formation
Shifting Ethnic Boundaries and Inequality in Israel
Stanford University Press

This chapter concludes the book by describing the Israeli ethnic formation from an individual point of view and from the point of view of students of race/ethnicity. The most important general contribution of the study is to show that identity can drive social closure in addition to material interest, and to show one way in which the formation of ethnic groups can be linked to the emergence of ethnic closure. This chapter also offers three point of note. First, the book joins those arguing that race/ethnicity should be treated as mutable rather than stable categories. Second, this study is an example of how ethnicity can be treated as “relational,” that is, as a set of macrolevel social contrasts that give each other meaning. Third, with regards to cultural capital, this book may suggest new ways of operationalizing ethnicity.
