About the Book

This book focuses on how globalization is impacting contemporary Israel. The book is a concise and originally argued introduction to Israel, but the author, Uri Ram, is careful to frame his analysis in a broader discussion of Israeli history and broader social currents, in particular, the book focuses on two defining - and conflicting - contemporary trends; one toward advanced liberal democracy with a cosmopolitan edge, and the other toward ethno-religious traditionalism and rejection of the secularism associated with market driven globalization. The cosmopolitan, high-tech driven city of Tel Aviv represents the former trend, and Jerusalem - a city increasingly dominated by orthodox Jews - represents the latter. Using Benjamin Barber's 'Jihad versus McWorld' thesis to good effect, Ram's book will stand as an ideal introduction to contemporary Israel and its place in the world.
Books in this series look at how nations and regions across the world are navigating the tumultuous currents of globalization. Concise, descriptive, interdisciplinary, and theoretically informed, they serve as ideal introductions to the peoples and places of our increasingly globalized world.
