Israel Studies Review

An Interdisciplinary Journal

Aims & Scope

Visit the new Israel Studies Review website here!

Israel Studies Forum was relaunched in 2011 as the Israel Studies Review, under the editorship of Yoram Peri, Gildenhorn Institute for Israel Studies.

Israel Studies Review's predecessors, Israel Studies Forum and Israel Studies Bulletin, are now available on JSTOR!

Israel Studies Review (ISR) is the journal of the Association for Israel Studies, an international and interdisciplinary scholarly organization dedicated to the study of all aspects of Israeli society, history, politics, and culture.

ISR explores modern and contemporary Israel from the perspective of the social sciences, history, the humanities, and cultural studies and welcomes submissions on these subjects. The journal also pays close attention to the relationships of Israel to the Middle East and to the wider world, and encourages scholarly articles with this broader theoretical or comparative approach provided the focus remains on modern Israel.

One of the main tasks of the ISR is to review in a timely manner recent books on Israel-related themes, published in English and Hebrew. Authors and publishers are invited to send us their books for review consideration.

The Israel Studies Review editors fully recognize the passions and controversies present in this field. They are dedicated to the mission of the ISR as a nonpartisan journal publishing scholarship of the highest quality, and are proud to contribute to the growth and development of the emergent field of Israel Studies.
