Drori, I., Ellis, S., and Shapira, Z. 2013. The Evolution of New Industry: A Genealogical Perspective. Stanford: Stanford University Press.
According to the authors: The aim of this book is to provide comprehensive account for the evolutionary process of a modern communication technology sector in Israel through a highly innovative approach, a historical genealogical approach. The genealogical approach enables us to trace the initial conditions under which a genealogy founding parents’ firm was established. Those in turn affect the way they spawn new ventures and have been shaping both the genealogy’s evolutionary trajectory and structure. This approach provides a new lens for looking at the intergeneration dynamics and sheds further light on the evolutionary dynamics of emerging industries and firms. Furthermore, by focusing on genealogical evolution, we are able to empirically trace the specific features associated with the founding processes of new ventures in terms of their birth origin along multiple generations, which in turn influence the potency of the entire genealogy. Our genealogical approach focuses on ancestral origin and the intergenerational evolution of diverse Israel communication technology firms and the way the genealogical evolution unleashed forces that shaped the emergence and growth of industries and the competitive advantage of firms.
