>>> Download Rethinking Arab Democratization: Elections without Democracy (OxfordStudies in Democratization) eBook <<<Review "This impressive book offers a probing analysis of Arab electoralism as part of apenetrating larger critique of the applicability of Western democratic 'transitology' to the Arabworld. Employing an effective blend of scholarly research and practical political insights, Sadikipresents a useful alternative lens that is true to local realities without sacrificing core democraticideals."--Thomas Carothers, Vice President for Studies, Carnegie Endowment for InternationalPeace "This is an invaluable, empirically rich exploration of the pitfalls, detours and dead-endson the variety of paths that may lead to democratization in the Arab world, or may not. If LarbiSadiki reveals a residual optimism about the future, it is only after he has presented anexhaustive examination of the manoeuvres and barriers that Arab political elites deploy tosustain privilege and stifle freedom. Larbi Sadiki reveals an informed empathy for the dynamicnon-elite social and political forces that seek greater freedom and greater justice. He isperceptive, thoughtful and persuasive, which is why his book will quickly be recognized as theindispensible and authoritative volume to read on the topic."--Augustus Richard Norton,Professor of International Relations and Anthropology, Boston University "The authorcombines to great advantage a close and critical familiarity with the politics of the Arab MiddleEast and Islamic culture with equally close knowledge of the relevant Western democratizationliterature. The result is a remarkable book that greatly advances our knowledge of thosecountries and of their--surely convoluted but not inexistent--possible paths toward democracy."--Guillermo O'Donnell, Professor Emeritus, University of Notre Dame About the Author LarbiSadiki is Senior Lecturer in Middle East Politics at the University of Exeter, where he isDirector of the Middle East Politics Programme. He has published widely on the question of democratic transitions in the Arab Middle East. Sadiki has been researching two separateprojects on Islamist notions of democracy, with special reference to Hamas and Hizbullah, titlesof forthcoming works he is currently authoring. His first book on Arab democratization hasbeen translated into Arabic and is widely used as the key reference on notions of Arabdemocracy.Download Rethinking Arab Democratization: Elections without Democracy (Oxford Studies inDemocratization) eBook - Click HERE!
