(p.42) Chapter Three Theoretical and Analytical Approaches to Ethnic Formation
Shifting Ethnic Boundaries and Inequality in Israel
Stanford University Press

This chapter provides theoretical background, including prior work on the question of why ethnic groups exclude each other and on dichotomization and categorization practices in Israel. It explains why Israel in the 1950s is a good site to examine the sources of racial/ethnic inequality and describes the theoretical frames that used for the analysis. It discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using quantitative data to address such issues. It also introduces the 1961 census, which is the main data set on which this book is based.

Keywords:   ethnic groups, dichotomization, 1950s Israel, racial inequality, 1961 census
