Overview

In a new edition of their book, Clement Moore Henry and Robert Springborg reflect on what has happened to the region's economy since 2001. How have the various countries in the Middle East responded to the challenges of globalization and to the rise of political Islam, and what changes have occurred? Utilizing the country categories they applied in the previous edition and further elaborating the significance of the structural power of capital and Islamic finance, they demonstrate how over the past decade the monarchies and the conditional democracies continue to fare better than the military dictatorships or "bullies" and the "bunker states."
