Summary
"At the beginning of the twenty-first century countries in the Middle East and North Africa contend with the threats and opportunities of economic globalization, the driving force of change in the contemporary world. As Clement Henry and Robert Springborg confirm in their straightforward and, at times, irreverent analysis of the region's response to these challenges, it is globalization which is the key to an understanding of economic reform." "Through an investigation of the structures of state and civil society, including financial systems, they also demonstrate that there is a correlation between economic performance and democratization. In other words, the more open and liberal a polity, the more effective is its economy in responding to globalization. By dividing countries in the region into particular categories - military dictatorships, as exemplified by the "bullies" and the "bunker states," and monarchies and conditional democracies - the authors signal their conclusions: that democracies and monarchies have a better chance of benefiting from economic globalization than the bullies and bunkers, but politics stands in the way of necessary reforms, even in the most promising prospects, such as Israel and Turkey." "With its up-to-date, original, and incisive approach to the politics and economics of the Middle East and North Africa, this will be an essential purchase for students and policy-makers, and for anyone trying to come to grips with economic globalization generally."--Jacket
