World famous economist and tech guru George Gilder reveals Israel as an emerging technology powerhouse, second only to the U.S. and far surpassing all European rivals in launching new industry-leading hi-tech firms. Gilder calls Israel the leading battleground for capitalism and freedom today, hated by the Left for the same reasons as the U.S.: because Israel's freedom and success inspires envy from the failed states that surround her. "Gilder's originality, plus the sheer force of his enthusiasm for the extraordinary virtues of the beleaguered Jewish state, sweep away the prevailing vitriol and make for a book that is nothing less than thrilling to read" (Norman Podhoretz).
