This study deals with the impact of the recent Soviet settlement immigration on the ethnic environment in Israel. The study shows that the Israelis’ acceptance of new immigrants was not only the product of ideological components, but was governed by pragmatic considerations and calculations of profit and loss at the individual and collective levels.

The study deals with several topics, including the Jewish-Arab national division, the ethnic division between Jews, Arab and Jewish public opinion, and other important topics.
