About this product
- DescriptionThis is the new revised edition of the essential Middle East studies compendium.The first edition of The Foreign Policies of Arab States was praised as a milestone for present and future research on Arab and Third World foreign policies ( American Political Science Review ), and an indispensable aid for those studying or teaching the foreign policies of the contemporary Middle East ( International Journal of Middle East Studies ). This third edition, with new material reflecting the earth-shaking events at the end of the Cold War and the continuation of violence and terrorism, examines foreign policies of nine Arab states in the context of globalization.Korany and Dessouki establish an analytical framework for assessing foreign policy in their introductory chapters, which they and other contributors then apply chapter by chapter to Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Leban, Sudan, the United Arab Emirates, Algeria, and Iraq. Facing new challenges in the twenty-first century, Arab states must confront problems of identity with the decline of pan-Arabism; attempt to balance ecomies impacted by sociopolitical turmoil; establish credible foreign policy under occupation or with a seriously fragmented political leadership; and walk the tightrope between a close relationship with the United States and a domestic religious faction that opposes all foreign influence.
