Overview

In this study, Henry (U. of Texas, Austin) and Springborg (American Research Center in Egypt) consider the responses of the Middle East and North Africa to the threats and opportunities brought about by globalization. Building upon an analysis of the policies of isolationist "bunker" states, bully praetorian states, globalizing monarchies, and fragmented democracies, they argue that globalization induces political changes that are beneficial for national economic growth.
