How have regimes from North Africa to the Gulf perpetuated themselves in spite of the weakness of the Western-style state, the Islamist trend, and the destabilising effects of war and terrorism? What strategies have states used to control their societies, and how have both states and societies adapted over time? _x000D_ _x000D_ In this ground-breaking book, aimed at new generation of students, Kjetil Selvik and Stig Stenslie provide a comprehensive introduction to the contemporary Middle East, using topical questions about stability and change as a way of interrogating the politics, economics and history of the region. _x000D_ _x000D_ Both an accessible reference resource and a thought-provoking analysis, Stability and Change in the Modern Middle East introduces the key theoretical concepts for understanding the region and the freshest thinking on debates surrounding them, and brings the empirical material in to sharp focus through its unique thematic approach.
