Overview

At the beginning of the twenty-first century countries in the Middle East and North Africa are contending with the challenges of economic globalization. In a straightforward and, at times, irreverent analysis of the regions' response to these challenges, the authors demonstrate that there is a direct correlation between economic performance and democratization: the more liberal the polity, the more effective its economy in responding to globalization. This is an original and incisive approach to the political economy of the Middle East that will be an essential purchase for students and policy-makers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Categories chosen are not just eye-catching but explanatory....This richly detailed, demanding study deserves a careful reading." Foreign Affairs

"This is a very interesting, provocative and thought-provoking book by two of the most experienced political scientists--turned political economists, at work on the Middle East." E. Roger Owen, A.J. Meyer Professor of Middle Eastern History, Harvard University

"This volume makes several significant contributions to the growing literature on the political economy of the Middle East." Middle East Journal

"...Henry and Springbog manage a 'tour de force' by combining insightful theoretical analysis with intricate quantitative and qualitative details of the states and societies under examination. Their conclusion...is important: countries that have gone furthest on the road to democratization stand the best chance of developing effective policies to respond to globalization and improve economic performance. The breadth and depth of the analysis deserve special mention....the authors have not only gathered an impressive number of facts and figures, they have also managed to do so while maintaining the coherence and incisiveness of their analysis. As a result, the volume marks a milestone in studying the impact of globalization on the MENA region. It will be of particular use to students of the Middle East, but also to anyone seeking a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing regional governments in the years and decades to come." International Journal
