About: 

This book offers a cultural, social, and political examination of the issue of space. The authors, writing from a variety of critical perspectives, analyze the land regime in Israel; the connection between land, territory, and nationhood; the various ways of talking about borders; the ideological background of population dispersal; and the culture of public housing in Israel. Thus the authors present, for the first time in Israel, a systematic and learned analysis that takes the issues of space, land, and home from the technocrats and the real estate family and returns them to researchers of culture, geographers, sociologists, historians, and philosophers.
