Abstract:

"In the period after their military service, Jewish Israeli youth customarily embark on a unique touristic practice: the backpacking trip. Combing sociological, anthropological, and psychological research - based on fieldwork conducted with Israeli backpackers in Israel and abroad - this book depicts the complex relationship between the traveling youth and their society of origin. Via a perspective the editors term "outside-in," we learn how social and cultural tensions and tenets, identities, fantasies, and preoccupations are acted out within a symbolic, touristic space by scores of Israeli youth."--Jacket.
