Tamara Chalabi highlights the development of a "politics of demand" and the increased political activism of this community in a time of great change. In doing so, she explores how Arab nationalism was transformed from an ideology of the opposition - a means for the empowerment of marginal communities whether they be Arab Muslim, Christian or rural - into a tool for the assertion of political domination. The book demonstrates the legacy/lessons from this one case study are applicable throughout the Middle East today.
