Book Description

15 Jun 2010
In the era of globalization, change is the order of the day, but the conventional view of the Arab Middle East is that of a rigid and even stagnant region. This book counters the static perception and focuses instead on regional dynamics. After first discussing types of change, identifying catalysts, and tracing the evolution of the region over the last sixty years, the international team of contributors go on to evaluate the development of Arab civil society; examine the opportunities and challenges facing the Arab media; link the debates concerning Arab political thought to the evolving regional and international context; look at the transformation of armed Islamist movements into deradicalized factions; assess how and to what extent women's empowerment is breaking down patriarchy; and analyze the rise of non-state actors such as Hizbollah and Hamas that rival central political authority.

This book was published in 2010. For those who read it before the events of 2011, the 'Arab Spring' came as slightly less of a surprise.
It is an excellent collection of essays concerning many aspects of the widespread change sweeping the Arab Middle East. The book is engaging and well-written, and concerns a wide number of subjects, from media to women to non-state actors.
If you want an introduction to some of the changing aspects of the region, buy this. You won't be disappointed.
