Contentious Politics in the Middle East : Popular Resistance and Marginalised Activism Beyond the Arab Spring Uprisings

Contentious Politics in the Middle East : Popular Resistance and Marginalised Activism Beyond the Arab Spring Uprisings
While the Arab people took center stage in the 'Arab Spring' protests, academic studies focus on state structure, regime nature, militaries, and external powers to understand popular uprisings in the Middle East. Contentious Politics in the Middle East redresses a gap in focus as it analyzes the complexities of popular agency through the framework of contentious politics theory, without neglecting the negotiations between the people and structural factors. The book's chapters apply familiar questions raised by theorists to the under-researched case study of the Middle East after the uprisings. Edited by Fawaz A. Gerges and featuring insights from top scholars, this collection seeks to answer these important questions as it advances contentious politics theory.

Sectarian Politics in the Gulf : From the Iraq War to the Arab Uprisings

Sectarian Politics in the Gulf : From the Iraq War to the Arab Uprisings
One of Foreign Policy's Best Five Books of 2013 chosen by Marc Lynch of The Middle East Channel Beginning with the 2003 invasion of Iraq and concluding with the aftermath of the 2011 Arab uprisings Frederic M. Wehrey investigates the roots of the Shi'a-Sunni divide now dominating the Persian Gulf's political landscape. Focusing on three Gulf states affected most by sectarian tensions-Bahrain Saudi Arabia and Kuwait-Wehrey identifies the factors that have exacerbated or tempered sectarianism including domestic political institutions the media clerical establishments and the contagion effect of external regional events such as the Iraq war the 2006 Lebanon conflict the Arab uprisings and Syria's civil war. In addition to his analysis Wehrey builds a historical narrative of Shi'a activism in the Arab Gulf since 2003 linking regional events to the development of local Shi'a strategies and attitudes toward citizenship political reform and transnational identity. He finds that while the Gulf Shi'a were inspired by their coreligionists in Iraq Iran and Lebanon they ultimately pursued greater rights through a nonsectarian nationalist approach. He also discovers that sectarianism in the region has largely been the product of the institutional weaknesses of Gulf states leading to excessive alarm by entrenched Sunni elites and calculated attempts by regimes to discredit Shi'a political actors as proxies for Iran Iraq or Lebanese Hizballah. Wehrey conducts interviews with nearly every major Shi'a leader opinion shaper and activist in the Gulf Arab states as well as prominent Sunni voices and consults diverse Arabic-language sources.

Arab Revolution : Ten Lessons from the Democratic Uprising

Arab Revolution : Ten Lessons from the Democratic Uprising
When Mohammad Bouazizi sets himself on fire on December 17, 2010, he started a series of extraordinary events that spread across the Middle East with stunning rapidity. In less than a month, President Ben Ali fled Tunisia, ending a twenty-three year regime. Shortly thereafter, on 11 February 2011, President Mubarak of Egypt stepped down after nearly thirty years in power.
In The Arab Revolution, Jean-Pierre Filiu offers a concise but sweeping account of the earth-shattering revolts that began in Tunis and continue today throughout the Middle East. Stressing the deep historical roots of the events, Filiu organizes the book around ten lessons that illuminate both the uprisings in particular and the region in general. He shows, for instance, that these movements didn't erupt out of thin air--Arabs have been fighting for their rights for more than a generation. The author sheds light on the role of youth--whose anger is power, he notes, and who embrace the message "tomorrow is yours, if you fight for it"--as well as the important role that social networks played in Tunisia and Egypt. Filiu also argues that in the aftermath, jihadists are in a difficult position, because the essentially peaceful grassroots protests in Tunisia and Egypt have undercut their message of violence and indeed have called into question their relevance. The book also reveals that, despite being somewhat overshadowed by the Arab uprising, Palestine remains the central concern throughout the Middle East.
By shining a light on these lessons rather than providing a strictly chronological account, Filiu provides a far richer and deeper portrait of the revolutionary movements sweeping the region--as well as an insightful look at life in the Middle East today.

Beyond the Facade: Political Reform in the Arab World (Paperback)

Beyond the Facade: Political Reform in the Arab World (Paperback)
Reform is a politically charged issue in the Middle East. Governments admit change is necessary, but do not want to surrender power. Opposition groups want democracy but cannot generate sufficient momentum. The Bush administration's ""freedom agenda"" has brought the issue into focus but blurred the distinction between democracy promotion and forceful regime change. Some governments have taken steps toward political reform. Are these meaningful changes or empty attempts to pacify domestic and international public opinion? How do we distinguish reforms that alter the character of the political system from those that are only window dressing? Beyond the Facade: Political Reform in the Arab World evaluates the changes that are taking place in the region and explores the potential for further reform. The essays provide careful, detailed examinations of ten countries (Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Yemen), highlighting the diversity of processes and problems. Beyond the Facade forces us to recognize the reality of conflicting interests and the limitations of external actors to bring about political reform, while drawing lessons on how to make international democracy promotion more effective. Contributors include Nathan Brown (George Washington University), Michele Dunne (Carnegie Endowment for International Peace),Amr Hamzawy (Carnegie Endowment for International Peace), Ellen Lust-Okar (Yale University), Sarah Phillips (National Democratic Institute,Yemen), Meredith Riley (Chinese University of Hong Kong), Hugh Roberts (freelance writer and consultant), and Paul Salem (Carnegie Middle East Center).
