Bassam Haddad
Collusion between businesscommunities and the state canlead to a measure o security orthose in power, but this kind o interaction oen limits new de- velopment. In Syria, state-busi-ness involvement through inor-mal networks has contributed toan erratic economy. With uniqueaccess to private businessmenand select state ocials during acritical period o transition, thisbook examines Syria’s politicaleconomy rom 1970 to 2005 toexplain the nation’s pattern o state intervention and prolongedeconomic stagnation.

Scial Mvemens,Mbilizain, andCnesain inhe Middle Easand Nrh Arica
Edited by Joel Beinin andFrédéric Vairel
Te Middle East and NorthArica have become places thatalmost everyone “knows” some-thing about. oo requently written o as culturally denedby Islam, strongly anti-Western,and uniquely susceptible toirrational political radicalism,authoritarianism, and terror-ism—these regions are rarely considered as sites o social andpolitical mobilization. Tis vol-ume reveals a rich array o mo-bilizations and oers a nuancedunderstanding o contexts, cul-turally conditioned rationality,and innovation in contentiousaction across the region.

Regime Power inEgypt and Syria
Joshua Stacher
Te decades-long resilienceo Middle Eastern regimesmeant that ew anticipatedthe 2011 Arab Spring. obetter understand thecourse o events across theregion, we must take a closer look at how regimes haveresponded and adapted to challenges to their power.Contrasting Egypt and Syria, this book takes a novelapproach to studying important patterns and dier-ences in authoritarian rule.Examining how power is structured in each country,Joshua Stacher shows how the uprisings and outcomeshave been shaped by preexisting power congurations,allowing certain autocratic systems to adapt more eas-ily than others. Power structures, elite alliances, stateinstitutions, and governing practices are seldom sweptaway entirely—even ollowing successul revolutionsso it is vital that we examine the various contexts orregime survival to understand ongoing events in theMiddle East.

Fiscal Crisis andPolitical Change inEgypt under Mubarak 
Samer Soliman
Over the last thirty years, theEgyptian state has increasingly given its citizens less money andewer social benets while si-multaneously demanding moretaxes and resources. Tis haslead to a weakened state—de-teriorating public services, lowlevels o law enorcement, pooropportunities or employmentand economic development—while simultaneously infatedthe security machine that hadsustained the authoritarian re-gime. Studying the regime romthe point o view o its deedsrather than its discourse, thisbook tackles the relationshipbetween scal crisis and politi-cal change in Egypt.
