Abstract

This study takes advantage of the existence in Israel of a distinctive and often neglected form of cooperative settlement, the moshav, in order to clarify the theoretical issues implicit in the contrast between collective versus family upbringing. Socialization practices in the moshav are compared with those of kibbutz and city, based on the responses of about 1,000 preadolescents to the Cornell Socialization Agent Inventory. Findings show that patterns of child-rearing practices in the 3 settings tend to fall on a continuum, with the moshav in an intermediate position but somewhat closer to kibbutz than city. This has been interpreted as reflecting the counteracting influences of the cooperative organization of the larger society versus a traditional family structure, with the former exerting a somewhat stronger effect.
