Beyond the fac̦ade : political reform in the Arab world( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 issue into focus but blurred 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 character of the political system from those that are only window dressing? This book evaluates changes that are taking place in the region and explores the potential for further reform. The essays provide detailed examinations of ten countries, highlighting diversity of processes and problems. They force 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
