About this item

Roby documents the discrimination of the minority but dominant European Ashkenazi Jews against the majority Mezrahim, or Jews from the Middle East and Asia, during the first two decades of the state of Israel. He also describes efforts by the government to modernize and assimilate Middle Eastern Jewry, and the struggle by the Mezrahim to retain their cultural identity. He discusses building and organizing the Israeli police, the foundations of the Mizrahi civil rights struggle 1948-58, resistance tactics in the Ma'abarot 1950-53, Mizrahi protests in urban space 1950-58, and Wadi Salib and after: Mizrahi rebellions 1959-66.
