Product description

Review

"The author's honest, conceptually strong, and well-written presentation focuses only on Israeli Jews, specifically, the families she was closest to and the activities she engaged in for a limited time in Jerusalem and Arad. Ochs skillfully locates her ethnographic work--not a psychological study (despite close attention to fear and anxiety), but an examination of everyday life and its intersection with state security and nation building--in the contemporary history and political economy of Israeli society."--"Choice"

"["Security and Suspicion"] is rich in ethnographic detail and balances attention to subjectivity, habits, rhetoric, and behavior. It is critical of structures and practices yet simultaneously deeply empathetic with the subjects who struggle to find peace amidst violence. The book's conclusion--that the practice of security might make Israelis feel less secure rather than more--is an intervention of tremendous significance. . . . An excellent book."--"American Ethnologist"

""Security and Suspicion" is at once an ethnographic account of daily life in Israel during the second intifada, and an introduction and then some to the ethnography of security in the post-9/11 world. Juliana Ochs probes embodiment, fear and fantasy as registers of security and insecurity in a contemporary landscape where normal life is politicized through the threat and actuality of violence. Her account of everyday sociability is nuanced and keenly observed; the implications of her analysis of the visceral quality of state legitimation constitute a significant contribution to the ethnography of politics in the 21st century."--Carol Greenhouse, Princeton University

"An empirically rich, interpretively savvy, and compelling addition to a growing body of literature that examines security practices, materiality, fantasies, and discourses."--"Middle East Journal"
