This chapter presents the purpose of the book, which is to examine Israeli national identity, looking at the ways in which it is imagined and at the ways various imaginings are deployed in the semiotics and politics of everyday life. Language is used to observe, clarify, and magnify the national, racial, ethnic, and class divisions found in Israel. The methods used in an ethnographic study in Haifa are described. An overview of the succeeding chapters is then presented.

Keywords:   Israel, national identity, Israeli society, social identity, ethnographic research, language
