about

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. The international team of contributors 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 Islamistmovements 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.
Bahgat Korany is Professor of International Relations and Political Economy at the American University in Cairo, and director of the AUC Forum. He is the editor (with Ali E. Hillal Dessouki) of The Foreign Policies of Arab States (AUC Press, 2008).
