Tel Aviv: The First Century

TEL AVIV

Visions, Designs, Actualities

Maoz Azaryahu and S. Ilan Troen, eds.

Tel-Aviv, the First Century brings together a broad range of disciplinary approaches and cutting-edge research to trace the development and paradoxes of Tel-Aviv as an urban center and a national symbol. Through the lenses of history, literature, urban planning, gender studies, architecture, art, and other fields, these essays reveal the place of Tel-Aviv in the life and imagination of its diverse inhabitants. The careful and insightful tracing of the development of the city's urban landscape, the relationship of its varied architecture to its competing social cultures, and its evolving place in Israel's literary imagination come together to offer a vivid and complex picture of Tel-Aviv as a microcosm of Israeli life and a vibrant modern global city.

MAOZ AZARYAHU is Professor of Cultural Geography at the University of Haifa and author of Tel Aviv: Mythography of a City.

S. ILAN TROEN is Founding Director of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies.

This volume is published by Indiana University Press as part of their Israel Studies Book series. To purchase.
