The Arab Predicament: Arab Political Thought and Practice Since 1967

by

The Arab Predicament: Arab Political Thought and Practice Since 1967 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How have Arab political ideas and institutions evolved since the 1967 War? How have the Arabs contended with the external influences to which their wealth has exposed them? What are the implications of the rise of Islamic fundamentalism? Fouad Ajami seeks to answer these and related questions in his illuminating study of the constraints and possibilities facing the Arab world today. The book documents the political and intellectual response to the defeat of 1967 and surveys the choices facing the Arab world as exemplified by the case of Egypt. It seeks to explain the resurgence of Islamic fundamentalism and locates its roots in the failures of the dominant political order, and the stalemate of secular political ideas. This revised edition of Ajami's acclaimed study has been updated and renews the book's status as an indispensable guide to the politics of the Arab world.
