RESEARCH COMMUNICATIONS Note: The International Journal of Comparative Sociology invites communica- tions in the form of short articles and reports about ongoing research, not ex- ceeding 5,000 words, both in the empirical and theoretical fields. EDITOR 1. Dynamics of Social Stratification in Kibbutzim ELIEZER BEN-RAFAEL Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Jerusalem, Israel Introduction: Three Types of Collectives The existence of stratification in kibbutzim is an issue which arises widespread dif- ferences of interpretation among researchers.

Thus, although stratification processes which are quite evident in kibbutz reality have been given consideration in some pieces of research (see Rosenfeld, 1951), their impact has been largely minimized by other sociologists (see, for instance, Shepher, 1974).
