'Immigration and Nation Building examines a dilemma shared by Israel and Australia with many other countries: they are nations of immigrants, but continued immigration introduces fractures and inequalities that could undermine the sense of nationhood. Systematic comparisons across many dimensions help the reader to view each country's experience from a new perspective. The analyses here provide a solid basis for addressing the underlying policy questions: Whose Israel? Whose Australia?'.
