Praise for Previous Editions

“This is one of the most important books about the Middle East to appear in the last thirty years. Richards and Waterbury have broken new ground with what is the first systematic economy analysis of the region. . . . Their landmark study will make us rethink the conventional wisdom about Middle East politics.” —Michael C. Hudson, Georgetown University

“Interesting, informative, and challenging.” — Choice (Outstanding Title)

“In analyzing the ongoing socioeconomic transformations of the Middle East, Richards and Waterbury provide remarkable insights into both the commonalities that give the region its identity and the many variations among countries. . . . Clear, informative, and amply documented throughout, the book is unique in its scope.” —Timur Kuran, Duke University
