The Government and politics of the Middle East and North Africa by Mark J Gasiorowski( Book )

2 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rapid social, economic, and political change is endemic to the Middle East and is often more revolutionary than evolutionary in nature. In many ways, the entire political landscape of the Middle East has been transformed in the past decade in the realm of both international relations and domestic politics: The collapse of the Soviet Union, the end of the cold war, and the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait have all had a profound effect on relations among states within the region and between those states and countries outside the region. In this revised edition, Long and Reich provide comprehensive and up-to-date analyses of many critical contemporary events and issues. The contributors explain how Desert Storm isolated Iraq and brought Syria back into the mainstream of Arab politics, contributing to the revival of the Arab-Israeli peace process. They also show how the return of a Labor government in Israel has allowed the peace process to go forward. Evaluating the economic costs of the Kuwait war and the continuing oil glut, the authors find that resulting changes in the domestic economies of the oil-producing states have created additional pressures for social and political change. The most profound change in government and politics, however, is the rise of Islam as the idiom of political discourse among moderates as well as extremists. -- Publisher description

""A welcome addition to the literature on a state about which most Americans know very little."--Perspectives on Political Science" ""For the nonexpert or the reader contemplating a first visit to the kingdom, this book is an excellently concise introduction to a fascinating country. Even readers familiar with the kingdom will find of interest Long's observations on Saudi society and the cultural context in which decision making takes place."--Middle East Policy" ""With succinct chapters on Saudi geography and people, history and politics, oil and development, foreign and security politics, and a particularly fine essay on the hajj, Long's book is remarkably successful in providing a feel for this country of startling contrasts and anomalies ... This short and readable handbook is an extraordinary resource for up-to-date information and fair-minded interpretation."---Choice" ""Full of insights into a complex and often misunderstood society which has so far managed to reconcile the secularizing influences of modern technology with its strong religious traditions ... Sophisticated and penetrating."---International Journal of Middle East Studies" ""Introduces the country, its people, and its rulers, focusing on the political system, oil wealth (and subsequent economic development and modernization), its religious identity, and Riyadh's foreign and national security policies ... Will undoubtedly become the new reference work on Saudi Arabia."---Middle East Studies Association Bulletin" "This Second Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and includes new chapters on tradition and modernity and on Islam and society. Author David Long has been joined by new coauthor Sebastian Maisel; together they offer extensive analysis of the substantial political, economic, and social changes that have taken place in the past ten years, including 9/11, the U.S. war on terror, the Saudi war on terror, oil pricing, and technological advancements."--Jacket

Evolution and religion in American eduation : an ethnography by David E Long( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evolution and Religion in American Education shines a light into one of America's dark educational corners, exposing the regressive pedagogy that can invade science classrooms when school boards and state overseers take their eyes off the ball. It sets out to examine the development of college students' attitudes towards biological evolution through their lives. The fascinating insights provided by interviewing students about their world views adds up to a compelling case for additional scrutiny of the way young people's educational experiences unfold as they consider--and indeed in some cases reject--one of science's strongest and most cogent theoretical constructs. Inevitably, open discussion and consideration of the theory of evolution can chip away at the mental framework constructed by Creationists, eroding the foundations of their faith. The conceptual battleground is so fraught with logical challenges to Creationist dogma that in a number of cases students' exposure to such dangerous ideas is actively prevented. This book provides a detailed map of this astonishing struggle in today's America--a struggle many had thought was done and dusted with the onset of the Enlightenment

New perspectives on international functionalism( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reassesses international functionalism as an approach to conflict in the contemporary global political economy. The volume is a contribution to critical and constructive work in the tradition of liberal internationalism of which functionalism is a major part. The chapters link functionalism to current theoretical discourses in international relations. A revised functionalism emerges as the possible basis for a middle ground between the positivist theories of political economy that dominate much of the field of international relations and radical post-modernist and constructivist critiques
