Israel Studies presents multidisciplinary scholarship on Israeli history, politics, society and culture. Each issue includes essays and documents on issues of broad interest reflecting diverse points of view. Temporal boundaries extend to the pre-state period, although emphasis is on the State of Israel. Due recognition is also given to diaspora communities and their relationship to the state. The journal is cosponsored by the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, in affiliation with the Association of Israel Studies. It is published by Indiana University Press.
