The Origin of the Inequality of the Social Classes

A view commonly held by students of Israeli society is that social classes are weakly structured in Israel because they are a relatively recent phenomenon and because other cleavages blur class distinctions. Another, more general, argument in the literature emphasizes the decline of class as a salient social category and the rising importance of other categories of stratification, such as ethnicity and religion. In this paper we test both arguments by studying the differentiation of cultural lifestyles in Israel.

The analysis reveals that indicators in these three fields crystallize into three distinct lifestyle clusters: Highbrow, Popular, and Religious. We find significant class differences in highbrow lifestyle consumption.

- Почему же так долго. - Ты явно не в себе, - как ни в чем не бывало сказал Хейл. - Какие-нибудь проблемы с диагностикой. - Ничего серьезного, - ответила Сьюзан, хотя вовсе не была в этом уверена. Следопыт задерживается. Она подумала, не ошиблась ли где-то.
- Все становится на свои места. Какой-то миг еще ощущались сомнения, казалось, что в любую секунду все снова начнет разваливаться на части. Но затем стала подниматься вторая стена, за ней третья. Еще несколько мгновений, и весь набор фильтров был восстановлен. Банк данных снова был в безопасности. В комнате творилось нечто невообразимое.
