    University of Georgia Press 2015; US$ 32.95

    Beginning in January 2011, the Arab world exploded in a vibrant demand for dignity, liberty, and achievable purpose in life, rising up against an image and tradition of arrogant, corrupt, unresponsive authoritarian rule.

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 155.00

    This volume, first published in 1988, analyses the process of stabilisation amongst the Arab states, a process that has contradicted all predictions of impending disintegration and impending collapse.

  • The Slippery Slope to Genocideby I. William Zartman; Mark Anstey; Paul Meerts

    Oxford University Press, USA 2011; US$ 72.99

    Genocide results from the culmination of conflicts over identity. A group of people that feels threatened by extinction resorts to genocide as a pathologically defensive reaction.
