'At a time when there is vigorous debate about the potential for reform in the politics of the Middle East, sometimes slipping into alarm and disillusion, this book provides a much-needed grounding for thinking seriously through these issues. Its focus on the forces and limitations of change is a refreshing corrective to those volumes that lead readers to think that the Middle East is inhabited solely by fighters, victims and ideologues. Perhaps most impressively it draws heavily upon the politics of the smaller and often misunderstood states to illustrate how their politics exemplify many of the key issues that affect today's - and tomorrow's - Middle East.' - Glen Rangwala, Lecturer and Fellow of Trinity College, University of CambridgeReseña del editor:
In this ground-breaking book, aimed at new generation of students, Stig Stenslie and Kjetil Selvik provide a new introduction to the contemporary Middle East, using topical questions about stability and change as a way of interrogating the politics, economics and history of the region. How have regimes from North Africa to the Gulf perpetuated themselves in spite of the weakness of the Western-style state, the Islamist trend, and the destabilising effects of war and terrorism? What strategies have states used to control their societies, and how have both states and societies adapted over time? Both an accessible reference resource and a thought-provoking analysis, Stability and Change in the Modern Middle East introduces the key theoretical concepts for understanding the region and the freshest thinking on debates surrounding them, and brings the empirical material in to sharp focus through its unique thematic approach.
