Présentation de l'éditeur

'The people want...': So began the slogans chanted by millions of protesters across the Arab world in 2011, as their long-suppressed craving for democracy revealed itself. But huge social and economic problems were also laid bare by the protestors' demands, signalling the beginning of a long and complex revolutionary process.

In this landmark work, noted Middle East specialist Gilbert Achcar analyses the socio-economic features that hinder the region's development, as well as the social and political dynamics of the uprisings, and sheds light on the various movements that use Islam as a political banner and their historical connections with the oil monarchies.

This updated edition includes a new chapter assessing the key developments that have unfolded since 2013. --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

The author's rhetoric is out of date--too much like old-line commy-write.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Deeper roots of Arab uprisings 24 avril 2014
Par Raamin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Gilbert Achcar through his book looks at the causes behind the uprisings engulfed Arabic countries since 2011. Achcar initially starts with bringing in some social and economic data pointing out that how development in the Middle East and North African countries (MENA) has been hampered by the wave of so called Neoliberal reforms since 80's. Achcar shows that the Neoliberal structural adjustments in this region have resulted in a fall in economic growth, investment and high unemployment especially among youth and graduates. He argues that the weakening economy, high unemployment and disintegration of social services state used to provide have contributed to the emergence of mass discontents which have prepared the ground for the uprisings.
In the following chapters Achcar seeks the reasons behind such a downturn. He identifies two main characteristics of MENA region responsible for failure of Neoliberalism in promoting growth including the existence of Rentier States and Patrimonial political structures. Achcar argues that in MENA region in contrast to east and south east Asia the Neoliberal reforms have not promoted growth through the emergence of what he calls “market bourgeoisie”, Instead massive privatization programs have resulted in the emergence of "state bourgeoisie" (oligarchs from within the state or with strong connection to it). The state bourgeoisie due to its ties to the rentier state and easy profit it earns through the rent money does not have much incentive for investment and the result has been a steady fall in investment, growth and employment. Achcar’s book offers fresh and original insights to the Arab uprising very different from mainstream cliché type analyses which simplifies everything to people vs. despotic rulers and demand for democracy.
