Editorial Reviews

Review

Delving into the historical realities of one specific society, Israel, Dahlia Moore enlarges our understanding of the interplay of ideologies and reality. Two Steps Forward, One Step Back presents an engaging and in-depth analysis of the forces that have sometimes fostered and more often impeded equality between the sexes in Israel. The book will provide fascinating reading to anyone who wishes to study the status of women—in Israel or around the world. —Faye J. Crosby, Co-editor of Sex Discrimination in Employment

Format: Hardcover
I was really looking forward to reading this book; it seemed to promise some new insights into the lives of Israeli women. However, to a great extent it read like a survey of the literature on the topic. It focuses primarily on the forces which shape the lives of Israeli-Jewish secular women. Much of the information found here is not new and the author all too fond of summarizing other studies (be they other studies on Israel, comparative studies done elsewhere, or her earlier work). There were an inordinate number of tables, which could have been summed up in a couple of sentences and several glaring historical inaccuracies. In short, disappointing.
