Abstract or Brief Description

FROM THE REVIEW: "When it comes to Israel, it sometimes seems that so much has been written that new authors will be fated either to reshuffle existing prose or to examine past and present through ever more power microscopes. Then, once in a while, someone comes along with original ideas. This book is a persuasive and hard hitting consideration of Israel's development in a global political economy context. Those who feel poorly acquainted with economics should not be deterred from reading it: they will be rewarded not only by deeper insights into the processes shaping current events, but by moments of revelation".
