Item description for Civil Society in the Middle East (Social, Economic and Political Studies of the Middle East and Asia) by Augustus Richard Norton...
Launched in 1992, the Civil Society in the Middle East program brought together dozens of leading scholars to analyze political life through an exploration of civil society within the states of the region. A wealth of new material on non government organizations (NGOs), unions, political parties and professional syndicates is offered. This is the second of two volumes published by E.J. Brill, and it contains original studies of Algeria, Gaza, Iran, Israel, Turkey, the Sudan, Yemen and the Arab states of the Gulf. Collectively, these contributions challenge profoundly the notion that civil society is alien to the Middle East. As a two volume set, Civil Society in the Middle East is the most comprehensive analysis of state-society relations in the Middle East that is available.

Penetrating studies of the Middle East Dec 12, 2003
After reading the newspapers obsessively since September 11 I have developed a quest for a deeper knowledge of Middle Eastern societies. This is the best book that I have found for understanding how people and groups relate to their governments in the Middle East, and how the governments, in turn, seek to dominate and manipulate citizens. President Bush has announced a major policy shift emphasizing the promotion of democracy in the Middle East. I hope his advisors have read this book.
