Om boka

The Struggle for the New Arab State shows how the wave of revolt which has shaken the Arab world since 2011 has its roots in the replacement of the postcolonial development model with neoliberalism. Samer N. Abboud tracks the implementation and impact of neoliberal policies in the Arab World, and how they created the social dislocation which triggered the uprisings.

Abboud provides a sophisticated analysis of the differing experiences across the region, looking at the interplay of domestic forces, regional trends and global pressures. What emerges is a deep understanding of how previous models of power have been disrupted and created the conditions for new political and economic possibilities.

The Struggle for the New Arab State is essential reading for anyone wanting to understand the new climate of dissent in the Arab world, and the implications for the future of the region.
