"This marvelous Collection examines the causes, processes, and paths of change that led to a transformation of kibbutz society in a quickly evolving, new nation-state
. . . [T]here is much well-presented information on re-establishment of the nuclear family, the kibbutz as a bedroom community rather than an integrated work commune, the rise of materialism, outside and foreign workers in the agricultural/industrial sphere, eco-Zionism, shifting ideologies, etc. Clearly, the kibbutz is alive and well and. . . different. This is currently the best source to learn about it. . . Essential."
