This series of the Israel Sociological Association, whose object is to identify and clarify the major themes that occupy social research in Israel today, gathers together the best of Israeli social science investigation that was previously scattered in a wide variety of international journals. Each book in the series focuses on a particular topic and is introduced by integrative essays, making the volumes thorough and self-contained.

Israel is at the crossroads of many worlds: Africa, Asia, Europe, and has strong ties to the Anglo-American style of scholarship. In this, the fourth volume of Studies of Israeli Society, we have a perfect illustration of how vital these geographic linkages are in the sociological study of education in cross-cultural contexts. The volume, edited by the distinguished Anglo-Israeli scholar, and now rector of Bar-Han University, Ernest Krausz, adds a new dimension to this series, and no less, to the global understanding of the dual process of education and learning. The scope and depth of Israeli scholarship in the sociology of education will be manifest from the opening new essay by Eliahu Katz honoring the late Joseph Ben-David, to the closing comprehensive bibliography by David Glanz.
