The Israeli Defence Forces and the Foundation of Israel discusses the contribution of the IDF to the development of the Israeli State and society. The Force was a principal player in Israel's early years and had a significant impact on the fields of settlement, immigration absorption and education. Sociological concepts such as 'nation-building', 'melting pot' and 'a nation in uniform' characterize the roles played by the IDF and highlight its involvement in nationally oriented social processes.
