Description

The Bedouin in the Negev region have undergone a remarkable change of life style in the course of the 20th century: within a few generations they changed from being nomads to an almost sedentary and highly educated population. The author, who is a Bedouin himself and has worked in the Israeli Ministry of Education and Culture as Superintendent of the Bedouin Educational Schools in the Negev for many years, offers the first in-depth study of the development of Bedouin society, using the educational system as his focus.

Aref Abu-Rabia teaches in the Department of Middle East Studies at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

Subject: Development Studies Educational Studies General Anthropology
Area: Middle East & Israel
