    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 54.95

    Political succession is a key issue in the contemporary Middle East. In this new study the author examines the process and shows how respect for those in authority and tribal codes of loyalty have been far more influential in maintaining regimes than security institutions and political repression. The Arab world is faced by political turmoil and... more...

  • The Political Right in Israelby Dani Filc

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 48.95

    This book takes a fresh look at the trajectories of Israeli politics since the election of Likud in 1977, examining how right wing parties have adopted populist policies in order to carve out an identity and win support at the polls. As such it demonstrates how populism has become a hugely significant factor in shaping Israeli politics and society.... more...

  • The Struggle over Democracy in the Middle Eastby Nathan J. Brown; Emad Shahin

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 53.95

    Many residents of the Middle East - and more recently, Western powers - have placed great hope in democratization in the region. Yet authoritarianism remains the norm and movement towards democracy is both slow and uneven.  The Struggle over Democracy in the Middle East examines democracy and democratization in the light of regional realities... more...

  • Islam, Democracy and Dialogue in Turkeyby Dr Bora Kanra

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    Most theorists of deliberative democracy treat deliberation as a procedure in decision-making. This approach neglects an important phase oriented not so much to decision-making but to social learning and understanding. Combining deliberative theory with research from social psychology, Bora Kanra has developed an innovative critique and synthesis... more...

  • Bombs and Ballotsby Dr Krista Wiegand

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2013; US$ 149.95

    Eventually, most terrorist and guerrilla groups are defeated by governments or gradually die off - sometimes becoming political parties, democratically participating in the non-violent governance of their states. Yet some terrorist and guerrilla groups maintain military capabilities, using violence and democratic participation simultaneously. Here,... more...

  • Iraq, Democracy and the Future of the Muslim Worldby Ali Paya; John L Esposito

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 54.95

    Iraq, democracy and Islam are powerful global forces which shape not only many aspects of the lives of Muslims, but the lives of other citizens of the world as well.

  • The Coming Revolutionby Walid Phares

    Pocket Books 2010; US$ 26.00

    After the 9/11 Commission concluded in 2004 that the U.S. was engaged in a war with terrorists and never realized it, they reasoned that ?a failure of imagination? had prevented us from seeing terrorism coming. In effect, Americans were simply unable, or in fact disabled, to fathom that there were people who hated and opposed our democracy with such... more...

  • Democracy in Turkeyby Ali Resul Usul

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 48.95

    This book examines the impact of European political conditionality on the process of democratization in Turkey over a twenty year period. Employing theoretical and conceptual approaches to the issue of EU conditionality, the author compares the case of Turkey to that of other European nations. Arguing that Turkey became vulnerable to the European... more...

  • Public Management in Israelby Itzhak Galnoor

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 49.95

    As government management in Israel is gradually replaced by private sector management, it is becoming apparent that the collective-oriented mission of government cannot be fulfilled by the private sector or by the non-profit organizations of civil society. This book provides an analysis of the machinery of government in Israel, highlighting the inadequacy... more...

  • Civil Society and Democratization in the Arab Worldby Francesco Cavatorta; Vincent Durac

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 54.95

    The transition paradigm has traditionally viewed civil society activism as an essential condition for the establishment of democracy.
