OPEC : the failing giant by Mohammed E Ahrari( )

12 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A glut of oil, dropping prices, the threat of insolvency, a divided membership -- these developments in the early weeks of 1985 underline the cogency of Mohammed Ahrari's historical study of the OPEC oil cartel and his argument that economic forces, not politics, determine OPEC's action in the world arena. The impetus for the formation of OPEC in 1960 was the desire of the oil-producing states for greater income from their most valuable resource. The international oil corporations had secured lucrative concessions early in this century, and in the 1960s they still dictated both the terms of pro
The Islamic challenge and the United States : global security in an age of uncertainty by Mohammed E Ahrari( )

13 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Islamic Challenge and the United States the conflict between Islam and the West-especially the United States chronicles the clashing political legacies of Islam and the United States. The author argues that Islam has no tradition of separation of politics and religion, while that separation is at the heart of America's global promotion of democracy. Similarly, secularism is an important aspect of Western-style democracy, while the Islamists of all varieties emphatically reject that notion. Consequently, Islam and the United States have remained on opposite, conflicting, sides of key issues at the heart of politics, the style of governance, and the place of religion in a polity. To quote the author: "This book is about the Islamic challenge to the primacy of the United States. If global politics is regarded as a constant tussle for primacy among various powers, ideologies, and isms, then, from the perspective of this book, America's major challenge in the post-Cold war years also comes from Islam, both a religion as well as a political force from its very inception. The conflict between the United States and Islam involves the Islamists, Salafists, as well as the self-styled jihadists (aka "terrorists"). It is partly ideological, partly cultural, and partly religious (especially when it comes to the Islamists' notion of Islamic government. The most obdurate issues related to this conflict involve the type of government, Westernization, modernization, and secularism. In that capacity, they are most difficult to resolve. The most explosive aspect of this conflict involves the self-styled jihadists and the United States. Even though this particular aspect of this conflict will be the major focus of this book, ample attention will also be paid to the prospects of resolution of obdurate issues, especially in the context of the United States' interactions with the Islamists in the wake of the Arab Awakening." A key strength of this manuscript is the case studies and historical detail it provides. For the final manuscript the author has revised extensively to: include timely coverage of ISIS; strengthen ties between cases by linking the theme of conflict between forces of democracy and secularism (the United States and the West) versus those groups who categorically reject democracy and secularism as antithetical to Islam throughout the manuscript; better define Islam; better outline his methodology and approach in the introduction. The final manuscript also includes a new concluding chapter to further analyze cases and provide detailed commentary on what both the US/Middle East could change in the future and the predicted outcomes."--

The great powers versus the hegemon by Mohammed E Ahrari( )

24 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A global power transformation is taking place without a major war or any other cataclysmic event. The great powers -- China, India and Russia -- challenge the Hegemon -- the United States -- as well as each other with their strategic maneuvers. In this book, Ehsan Ahrari shows that while the sustained rise of China as the US' proto-peer is a reality, there is nothing inevitable about the demise of the US as the superpower. The next decade of the 21st Century may witness the emergence of a bipolar order where China leads in economics but does not seriously challenge the military dominance of the US. India's powers will grow, not least due to its evolving strategic partnership with the US. Russia, however, will be left behind largely due to its weak economy. Finally, he argues that the US will remain the lone superpower, because of its sustained strategic dominance in East Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, and because it has maintained a highly proactive profile in leading the world economy out of the current recession."--Back cover

The new great game in muslim Central Asia by Mohammed E Ahrari( Book )

11 editions published between 1966 and 2002 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dismantlement of the Soviet Union also brought about the liberation of six Central Asian Muslim republics-Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. Although Azerbaijan is part of the Caucasus region, it is included in this study because: the independence of that country, like that of the Central Asian states, was brought about as a result of the dismantlement of the Soviet Union. Azerbaijan like its Central Asian counterparts is a Muslim state, and faces similar politico-economic problems. Azerbaijan's conflict with Armenia involving Nagorno-Karabkh reminds one of a number of conflicts in the Central Asian region. these include a seething ethnic conflict in Kazakhstan (involving the Khazaks and the Slavs), the ongoing civil war in Tajikistan along ethnic, national, and religious lines (since the Russian forces are also involved in this civil war), and the ethnic conflict in the Fargana valley that cuts across the borders of Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. Like the economies of its Central Asian neighbors, the Azeri economy was largely dependent on the economy of the former Soviet Union. Consequently, like its other neighbors. Azerbaijan is also busy establishing economic self-sufficiency, along with strengthening its religious political, linguistic, and ethnic identities

Countering the ideological support for HT and the IMU the case of the Ferghana Valley by Mohammed E Ahrari( Book )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ferghana Valley consists of portions of Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan. The chief problems of that Valley include the absence of democracy, the presence of acute economic underdevelopment, and a high degree of repression. These conditions are generally considered to be contributing to the popularity of extremist movements. Two such organizations are the focus of this study: Hizb ut-Tahrir-e-Islami or Hizb Tahrir (the Islamic Liberation Movement or HT), and the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU). HT is a radical Islamist party, but it is not Jihadist in orientation. Its purpose is to establish the Caliphate (Khilafah) in Central Asia and elsewhere in the world of Islam. The proposition of creating a Caliphate is a radical one; however, HT insists that it intends to achieve its purpose through peaceful means only. The IMU is a pan-Islamist and Jihadist party. As such, it intends to overthrow the governments of the Ferghana Valley through violent means (i.e., through the use of militant Jihad). Indeed, it has exploited the repressive governing style of the governments and the acute economic underdevelopment of the area to launch a number of armed attacks in those countries in the late 1990s and 2000. The US involvement in Central Asia in the 1990s has been sporadic, and has not been guided by a coherent strategy. It was only after the terrorist attacks on its homeland on September 11, 2001, that the United States decided to seek the establishment of military bases in the region. Even then, the administration of President George W Bush was not focused on developing a coherent counterterrorism strategy that encompassed Central Asia and Afghanistan. This study sketches out a counterterrorism strategy for the United States in the Ferghana Valley. In essence, such a strategy should be called an anti-terrorism strategy, because it is much more comprehensive than America's present counterterrorism emphasis that drives its global war on terrorism.--Executive summary
