About this book

This book documents how Israel emerged as one of the world's leading centers of high technology over the last three decades and the impact that it has had, or failed to have, on the wider economy and politics. Based on the study of start-up companies, the project attributes the rise of Israel's tech economy to its unique history, political system, and culture, and shows how those same factors have failed it in the quest to diversify its economy to make it more inclusive and equitable. This work will interest economists, political scientists, Israeli studies academics, investors, policy makers, journalists, and business readers.

Reviews

“There are few analysts as insightful regarding Israel tech business as David Rosenberg. Not only does he know the territory, the companies, the data and all of the players but he puts together what has happened and where we are going. Must reading for investors in the start-up nation.” (Jonathan Medved, CEO of OurCrowd, Israel)
