Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A systematic study of the politics of Middle Eastern cities in a historical and comparative context. Focusing on informal patron- client, occupational, religious, and residential networks, argues that, contrary to the prevailing assumption, such networks do not necessarily play a stabilizing role, but since 1800 have repeatedly been effective instruments for mobilizing popular dissent. Paper edition (unseen), $17.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
