Business Politics In The Middle East from the Author: Steffen Hertog. Although most Arab countries remain authoritarian, many have undergone a restructuring of state-society relations in which lower- and middle-class interest groups have lost ground while big business has benefited in terms of its integration into policy-making and the opening of economic sectors that used to be state-dominated. Arab businesses have also started taking on aspects of public service provision in health, media and education that used to be the domain of the state; they have also become increasingly active in philanthropy. The ‘Arab Spring,’ which is likely to lead to a more pluralistic political order, makes it all the more important to understand business interests in the Middle East, a segment of society that on the one hand has often been close to the ancien regime, but on the other will play a pivotal role in a future social contract. Among the topics addressed by the authors are the role of business in recent regime change; the political outlook of businessmen; the consequences of economic liberalisation on the composition of business elites in the Middle East; the role of the private sector in orienting government policies; lobbying of government by business interests and the mechanisms by which governments seek to keep businesses dependent on them.

Globalization And The Middle East from the Author: Toby Dodge. The subject of globalization has come to dominate informed debate across a broad sweep of disciplines. But there are few good detailed published studies on the influence of globalization on non-European areas of the world. This study aims to fill the gap by bringing together a number of experts on the Middle East to examine the dynamic changes it has brought to the region. The book examines the place globalization occupies in the history of the Middle East and how it is set to transform relations between governments in the area and the external and former colonial powers. It focuses on the political, cultural and economic effects of globalization on the states of the Gulf, before applying each of these three themes to the wider Middle East.

Wasta from the Author: Robert Cunningham. "Wasta" means intercession or mediation. Traditionally, the head of the family in Middle Eastern countries performed wasta services by obtaining for the supplicant what is assumed to be otherwise unattainable. In recent years, wasta has become prominent in seeking benefits from government. Wasta pervades the culture of all Arab countries and is a force in all significant decision-making, yet it is not mentioned by most writers on the Middle East nor is it openly discussed by Arabs themselves. This book explains wasta--its practice, its effects, its advantages, and its social costs--through stories, personal profiles, and descriptions of social situations where its importance is magnified. The authors use Jordan as an example to illustrate the challenge of doing business in and with public organizations where kinship, locale, ethnicity, religion, and wealth render some people more privileged than others in obtaining employment, university admission, or equal treatment under the law.
