6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This case study describes the work of the people responsible for creating festive lore and its system of ceremonies and festivities - an inseparable part of every culture." "Staging and Stagers in Modern Jewish Palestine claims that the system of ceremonies and festivals, in general, and each separate ceremony and festival were staged according to the instructions written by a defined group of cultural activists. The book examines three main stages - the educational network, rural society (particularly the cooperative sector), and urban society (most notably Tel Aviv) - and looks at the stagers themselves, who were schoolteachers, writers, artists, and cultural activists."--Jacket
