a must read. Suad Joseph, University of California, Davis [Lavies] compelling account defies conventional labels for ethnography by combining elements of autoethnography, memoir, testimonio, cultural critique, extended case study, Bakhtinian contrapunct, and the reflexive essay style of critical race feminists. Faye V. Harrison, University of FloridaLavies analysis of the fusion of bureaucratic and religious power is without equal in the classics of political anthropology. Martha Mundy, London School of EconomicsThis a powerful, indeed an exceptional, book on the fate of Mizrahi single mothers in todays Israel...

without the romanticism and idealism within which Israeli middle-class Jews love to bedeck themselves and present themselves. Don Handelman, The Hebrew UniversityWhat is the relationship between social protest movements in the State of Israel, violence in Gaza, and the possibility of an Israeli attack on Iran? Why did the mass social protests in the State of Israel of summer 2011 ultimately fail? This book discusses social protest movements from the 2003 Single Mothers March led by Mizrahi Vicky Knafo, to the Tahrir is Here Israeli mass protests of summer 2011.

Equating bureaucratic entanglements with pain-what, arguably, can be seen as torture-the author explores the conundrum of loving and staying loyal to a state that repeatedly inflicts pain on its non-European Jewish women citizens through its bureaucratic system. The book presents a model of bureaucracy as divine cosmology and posits that Israeli State bureaucracy is based on a theological essence that fuses the categories of religion, gender, and race into the foundation of citizenship.SMADAR LAVIE is a visiting professor at the Center for Middle Eastern Studies, U.C.
