Daniel Maman is Associate Professor, Department of Sociology & Anthropology at Ben Gurion University, Israel. My fields of interest include economic sociology, sociology of finance, comparative political economy, and institutional change. Among my books are The Military, State and Society in Israel: Theoretical and Comparative Perspectives (co-editor with Eyal Ben-Ari and Zeev Rosenhek, Transaction Publishers, 2001); and The Israeli Central Bank: Political Economy, Global Logics and Local Actors (co-author with Zeev Rosenhek, Routledge, 2011). I also published in leading journals, including Socio-Economic Review, Review of International Political Economy, Organization Studies, British Journal of Sociology, and Journal of Cultural Economy. Currently, I am studying the emergence and development of financial literacy in Israel and the restructuring of Israel’s financial system.
