Abstract

This article presents significant transformations in the social history of the Israeli Arab extended family as reflected in the architectural history of the inner courtyard - once the focal point of the extended family's economic and social life. The article places this socio-architectural perspective within its broad political, economic and demographic contexts. As an interdisciplinary study in the sociology of space, it weaves together anthropological insights regarding social structures and processes and geographical explanations of the rapid changes in the landscape of Israeli Arab villages, towns, and cities.
