Israel is a country that draws a lot of public attention around the globe. Nevertheless, both those who support Israel and those who are critical of its geopolitical standing and policies, usually have a very limited knowledge about the Israeli society and its political system. This course presents Israel from multiple perspectives - political, social, economic and cultural - in an attempt to expose the learners to a cutting edge academic research on the country.

TOP REVIEWS FROM ISRAEL STATE AND SOCIETY
well and thorough explanations of important topics that allows us to understand Israel State and Society. I also didn't find the course biased which is a good thing.
Very informative, and engaging, videos. There are however no links to useable reading texts, which is a shame. But the content of the videos are of incredible value.
I came into the class already knowing a lot about Israel from both living in it and books. However, it was great seeing a college level discussion on the topic.
Really good over view of the demographics of Israeli society. As a diaspora Jew it's given me a greater understanding of Israeli politics.
