Product Overview

This study examines the development of capitalism in Israel. Taking a different view from the traditional modernization perspective, Ben-Porat argues that since 1948--when Israel became a state--the process of forming a capitalist society has underlain all other major processes. To explain capitalism in Israel, a perspective is needed that treats the problems of implanting capitalism in post-colonial states. Problems include the undeveloped class structure; the inability of the bourgeoisie to fulfill its capitalist role; the continuing post-colonial dependency on state support; and, most importantly, the central role of the state in enhancing, but also regulating, capitalism. *Author: Ben-Porat, Amir *Series Title: Greenwood Educators Reference Collection, *Series Number: 147 *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 224 *Publication Date: 1993/08/30 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.21 x 6.14 x 0.56 inches
