How capitalism failed the Arab world : the economic roots and precarious future of Middle East uprisings by Richard Javad Heydarian( )

15 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 975 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economic liberalization has failed in the Arab world. Instead of ushering in economic dynamism and precipitating democratic reform, it has over the last three decades resulted in greater poverty, rising income inequality and sky-rocketing rates of youth unemployment. In 'How Capitalism Failed the Arab World', Richard Heydarian shows how years of economic mismanagement, political autocracy and corruption have encouraged people to revolt, and how the initial optimism of the uprisings is now giving way to bitter power struggles, increasing uncertainty and continued economic stagnation
Asia's new battlefield : the USA, China and the struggle for the Western Pacific by Richard Javad Heydarian( )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offers a guide to understanding the evolution of maritime territorial disputes in East Asia, exploring their legal, political-security and economic dimensions against the backdrop of a brewing Sino-American struggle for hegemony. Heydarian shows how the pivotal relationship between the USA and China has been central to prosperity and stability in the Asia-Pacific. He also examines the ways that 'small' and 'middle' powers have shaped the trajectory of tensions in the region--tensions which could ignite an international war and re-configure the global order. --From publisher description
The rise of Duterte : a populist revolt against elite democracy by Richard Javad Heydarian( )

13 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first to analyze the significance and implications of the rise of Filipino president Rodrigo Duterte within a rapidly-changing Asia Pacific region. Duterte's open willingness to realign towards China (at the expense of America) in exchange for infrastructure investment is one of the clearest indicators of what China's rise might look like for nations around the world. Timely, precise, accessible and fast-paced, this book will be of value to scholars, journalists, policy-makers, and China watchers"--Back cover

Mare Liberum: Aquino, Duterte, and The Philippines' Evolving Lawfare Strategy in the South China Sea( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : The article analyzes the rationale, context, and implications of the Philippines' landmark arbitration case in the South China Sea. Specifically, it evaluates four important and inter‐related issues: (i) the centrality of international law, particularly the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, to the peaceful management and, if possible, resolution of the South China Sea disputes; (ii) political and strategic factors, which convinced the Aquino administration to embark on a risky and uncertain legal warfare (lawfare) strategy against Beijing, which, in turn, vehemently opposed any third party arbitration vis‐à‐vis maritime and territorial disputes; (iii) the merits, outcome, and strategic implications of the Southeast Asian country's arbitration case on the broader geopolitical landscape in the region; and lastly, the divergent South China Sea strategy of the Duterte administration, which decided to soft‐pedal and sublimate the arbitral tribunal award in favor of a dialogue‐based resolution of the disputes
