Book Description

6 Sep 2010 0521737443 978-0521737449 2
In this 2010 edition of their book on the economic development of the Middle East and North Africa, Clement Henry and Robert Springborg reflect on what has happened to the region's economy since 2001. How have the various countries in the Middle East responded to the challenges of globalization and to the rise of political Islam, and what changes, for better or for worse, have occurred? Utilizing the country categories they applied in the previous book and further elaborating the significance of the structural power of capital and Islamic finance, they demonstrate how over the past decade the monarchies (as exemplified by Jordan, Morocco and those of the Gulf Cooperation Council) and the conditional democracies (Israel, Turkey and Lebanon) continue to do better than the military dictatorships or 'bullies' (Egypt, Tunisia and now Iran) and 'the bunker states' (Algeria, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, Syria and Yemen).

Product Description

Review

"Clement Henry and Robert Springborg's book, in particular, represents a serious attempt to build a typology of Arab authoritarianism, and one that maps remarkably well onto the outcomes of the Arab revolts so far...stimulating, innovative, empirically rich and highly relevant for all students of authoritarianism and political transition. " -Steffen Hertong, London School of Economics, Perspectives on Politics

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for the Uninitiated 28 Aug 2013
By Benjamin A. Plotke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A book with excellent content and miserable writing. The content deals with how economics and politics have effected the economic development in the middle east. The problem is the writing. It somehow manages to be complex and yet boring at the same time. It relies heavily on obscure academic terms and concepts. For example, take this quote from chapter One, "Schematically the colonial dialectic describes three basic stances (or Hegelian "moments") of a native elite towards the colonizers culture" I mean, cuz, like everyone knows what a "Hegelian 'moment'" is, rite? To me such a reference would seem more fitting in a philosophy text. Anyways, if you're considering assigning this to your poor undergrads, please reconsider. Thank you.
