9780199660070: The Arab Spring: Pathways of Repression and Reform

Several years after the Arab Spring began, democracy remains elusive in the Middle East. The Arab Spring that resides in the popular imagination is one in which a wave of mass mobilization swept the broader Middle East, toppled dictators, and cleared the way for democracy. The reality is that few Arab countries have experienced anything of the sort. While Tunisia made progress towards some type of constitutionally entrenched participatory rule, the other countries that overthrew their rulers-Egypt, Yemen, and Libya-remain mired in authoritarianism and instability. Elsewhere in the Arab world uprisings were suppressed, subsided or never materialized.

The Arab Spring's modest harvest cries out for explanation. Why did regime change take place in only four Arab countries and why has democratic change proved so elusive in the countries that made attempts? This book attempts to answer those questions. First, by accounting for the full range of variance: from the absence or failure of uprisings in such places as Algeria and Saudi Arabia at one end to Tunisia's rocky but hopeful transition at the other. Second, by examining the deep historical and structure variables that determined the balance of power between incumbents and opposition.

Brownlee, Masoud, and Reynolds find that the success of domestic uprisings depended on the absence of a hereditary executive and a dearth of oil rents. Structural factors also cast a shadow over the transition process. Even when opposition forces toppled dictators, prior levels of socioeconomic development and state strength shaped whether nascent democracy, resurgent authoritarianism, or unbridled civil war would follow.

About the Author:


Jason Brownlee is an associate professor of Government and Middle Eastern Studies at the University of Texas at Austin, where he teaches courses on US foreign politics, Middle Eastern politics, and authoritarianism.

Review:


"This is quite simply the best analysis of the Arab Spring that I have read. It draws on a wealth of social science and comparative history to evaluate the various reasons for the many failures and few successes in the regionâs recent political development. The conclusions are thoughtful, highly intelligent, and mostly depressing. But as a work of scholarship and in its relevance to real world issues, this is extremely impressive." -Fareed Zakaria, Host of CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS and columnist with The Washington Post


"This is the best book yet on why the Arab Uprisings proved unable to bring desired changes. Deftly blending theories of regime change with attention to the details of the uprisings and post-breakdown efforts to restore order, this authors clearly show why aspirations for democracy were so often disappointed." -Jack A. Goldstone, George Mason University and Woodrow Wilson Center


"The uprisings collectively described as the Arab Spring are the most dramatic political events, to date, in our young century. If we hope to understand this critical region, our current political era, and the prospects for democracy to take root in unfamiliar soil, we need to make sense of the Arab Spring. Brownlee, Masoud, and Reynolds are uniquely equipped for this task, bringing expertise on the history, culture, economy, geopolitics, and institutions that drove the uprisings and the politics that followed. The book reveals patterns amid complexity and separates solid evidence from speculation. We will be debating the Arab Spring for generations and updating how we understand it. But Brownlee, Masoud, and Reynolds provide the foundation. All the scholarship to come will build on this book." -John M. Carey, Dartmouth College


"The Arab Spring: Pathways of Repression and Reform is one of the most comprehensive accounts of the politics underlying the Arab Spring. This authoritative and well-researched book is both theoretically rigorous and empirically rich. The authors have put together a magnificent account of the Arab Uprisings. Anyone interested in acquiring a sophisticated understanding of these events must read this book." -Amaney Jamal, Edwards S. Sanford Professor of Politics, Princeton University


"Brownlee, Masoud, and Reynolds have written the first definitive account of The Arab Spring, setting a high standard by which all future works will be compared. Drawing on their theoretical talents and extensive regional knowledge, Brownlee, Masoud, and Reynolds offer a sophisticated argument for far reaching legacies of authoritarian rule, as well as a compelling explanation for different trajectories from authoritarian breakdown in the Arab world after 2011. Arab Spring will become must reading for all courses on the Middle East and comparative politics more generally for years to come." -Michael McFaul, Professor of Political Science, Stanford University


"By far the most ambitious and convincing analysis of the recent Arab uprisings in comparison to failed and successful democratic transitions in the rest of the world." -Alfred Stepan, Wallace Sayre Professor of Government, Columbia University


"This is the most systematic and analytically rigorous book on the Arab uprisings to date. Even the process of defining the questions that can and cannot be answered is based on a careful analytical exercise. The core arguments, which aim to explain why leaders were or were not ousted and why institutional change did or did not occur in the region, are convincing and well supported theoretically and empirically. Through meticulous inductive analyses, Brownlee, Masoud, and Reynolds move beyond the less historically grounded and more âproximateâ accounts that have proliferated since the uprisings, highlighting the structural factors that permitted or constrained the behavior of elites and citizens during and after the uprisings." -Melani Cammett, Professor, Government Department, Harvard University


"This is the book with which everyone interested in the Arab upheavals of 2011 must now grapple. It puts forward parsimonious and counter-intuitive explanations for the different results we see across the Arab world from those momentous events, and grounds those explanations in sophisticated and informed empirical analysis. It engages with larger theoretical debates but never loses its focus on the Arab Spring itself. It is a perfect teaching book, because it makes big arguments in a clear way. It will define the social science debate on the Arab Spring." -F. Gregory Gause, III, John H. Lindsey '44 Chair, Professor of International Affairs, Bush School of Government, Texas A&M University


"The Arab Spring: Pathways of Repression and Reform explains why the optimism that developed in 2010 and 2011 proved to be unjustified. In its analysis of the delayed democratic transition in most of the Middle East, it is incisive, parsimonious, compelling, and--perhaps above allâsobering." -Donald L. Horowitz, James B. Duke Professor of Law and Political Science Emeritus Duke University, Author of Ethnic Groups in Conflict


"The Arab Spring represents an important step forward in the systematic, theoretical analysis of the political turbulence which rocked the region beginning in late 2010. Placing the region firmly in comparative perspective and rigorously assessing the limited outcomes of the protest wave, The Arab Spring offers a parsimonious explanation of these events which establishes a new standard for political scientists." -Marc Lynch, Director, Institute for Middle East Studies and Professor of Political Science, The George Washington University
