The world through Arab eyes : Arab public opinion and the reshaping of the Middle East by Shibley Telhami( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Once a voiceless region dominated by authoritarian rulers, the Arab world seems to have developed an identity of its own almost overnight. The series of uprisings that began in 2010 profoundly altered politics in the region, forcing many experts to drastically revise their understandings of the Arab people. Yet while the Arab uprisings have indeed triggered seismic changes, Arab public opinion has been a perennial but long ignored force influencing events in the Middle East. In The World Through Arab Eyes, eminent political scientist Shibley Telhami draws upon a decade's worth of original polling data, probing the depths of the Arab psyche to analyze the driving forces and emotions of the Arab uprisings and the next phase of Arab politics. With great insight into the people and countries he has surveyed, Telhami provides a longitudinal account of Arab identity, revealing how Arabs' present-day priorities and grievances have been gestating for decades. The demand for dignity foremost in the chants of millions went far beyond a straightforward struggle for food and individual rights. The Arabs' cries were not simply a response to corrupt leaders, but were in fact inseparable from the collective respect they crave from the outside world. Decades of perceived humiliations at the hands of the West have left many Arabs with a wounded sense of national pride, but also a desire for political systems with elements of Western democracies-an apparent contradiction that is only one of many complicating our understanding of the monumental shifts in Arab politics and society. In astonishing detail and with great humanity, Telhami identifies the key prisms through which Arabs view issues central to their everyday lives, from democracy to religion to foreign relations with Iran, Israel, the United States, and other world powers. The World Through Arab Eyes reveals the hearts and minds of a people often misunderstood but ever more central to our globalized world

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the past year, the Task Force found that negative opinions of the United States and its policies have metastasized. The Council's Independent Task Force on Public Diplomacy was formed to devise fresh and creative responses to a problem that has too often received short shrift by the U.S. government. The United States is pelted daily by a range of knee-buckling problems and worse.To deal with them, the United States needs to play all the piano keys, from diplomacy to economic power to military power to public diplomacy. Public diplomacy encompasses how we express our policies to people who might not understand and agree with them, as well as the vehicles we use to reach those people. Without effective public diplomacy, the United States is left with only the soft private words of diplomacy and raw military and economic power

The Arab-Israeli peace process : assessing the costs of failure by Shibley Telhami( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As of mid-1997, the fate of the Arab-Israeli peace process is dangerously uncertain. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's decision to begin work on a new Jewish settlement in Jerusalem has so enraged Palestinians that they have effectively walked out of the negotiations. President Clinton has called on his special envoy, Dennis Ross, to exert every effort to get the Palestinians to return. Meanwhile, elements opposed to the peace process from within the Israeli political establishment have pressured the Prime Minister to halt or even reverse the steps taken to date. Given these current setbacks, it is worthwhile to review what hangs in the balance for U.S. interests in the Middle East. How important is success in the peace process? What are the implications should the peace talks fail? To examine these questions, the Strategic Studies Institute (SSI) of the U.S. Army War College joined with Villanova University's Center for Arab and Islamic Studies to cosponsor a conference on the peace process, at Villanova, in December 1996. The conference, organized by Dr. Anne Lesch of Villanova and SSI's Dr. Stephen Pelletiere, brought together six experts on the Middle East, each of whom discussed a different aspect of the crisis. The two papers presented here are particularly timely, as the authors examine the likely effects of breakdown, or breakthrough, on America's broader regional interests, extending in particular to the Persian Gulf. As U.S. policies with respect to the Gulf and the Arab-Israeli peace process come under increasing stress, these authors elaborate linkages between them. They also make clear that the outcomes will have profound implications for U.S. security commitments and, potentially, future missions and deployments

This house believes that Arab revolutions will just produce different dictators( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In their first free political debate in nearly three decades, Tunisians have rejected the idea that a new set of strongmen might emerge from the uprisings, rocking the Arab world. At a special session of The Doha Debates an audience of mainly students and young professionals voted 74 to 26 percent against the motion: "This House believes that Arab revolutions will just produce different dictators". The debate took place in the heart of the old city in Tunis, less than a mile from where thousands of demonstrators overthrew President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali on January 14. Speaking in favor of the motion were Raoudha Ben Othman, Professor of Linguistics at the University of Tunis, and Kamal Ben Younes, Executive Director of the International Studies Association and Institute Tunisia. Ben Othman warned that a new dictator could emerge even after the country's first free elections in nearly two decades, scheduled for this summer. She blamed a lack of accountability, transparency and a deep-rooted culture that favors loyalty to individuals, whoever they are. Ben Younes, a career journalist, was equally downbeat about the political future in Tunisia and Egypt, where the ruling military council has promised elections in six months, following the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak. Speaking against the motion were Shibley Telhami, professor for peace and development at the University of Maryland, and Fares Mabrouk, founder of the Arab Policy Institute, a new think tank supporting democratic change in the Middle East and North Africa. Dr. Telhami, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute, acknowledged there were risks in every transition to democracy. But he said an unprecedented sense of popular empowerment, bolstered by the internet, meant Arab governments could no longer ignore public opinion. Mabrouk, the youngest speaker on the panel, said Tunisians had to come up with a new political model, combining human rights, dignity, and the rule of law
