The Foreign Policies of Arab States

The Challenge of Globalization Edited by Bahgat Korany
Ali E. Hillal Dessouki

The new revised edition of an essential Middle East studies textbook

The first edition of this book was praised as “a milestone for present and future research on Arab and Third World foreign policies” (American Political Science Review), and “an indispensable aid for those studying or teaching the foreign policies of the contemporary Middle East” (International Journal of Middle East Studies). It has become a standard textbook in Middle East studies curricula all over the world. This third edition, with new material reflecting the earth-shaking events at the end of the Cold War and the continuation of violence and terrorism, examines foreign policies of nine Arab states in the context of globalization. The editors first establish an analytical framework for assessing foreign policy, which they and other contributors then apply chapter by chapter to Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Sudan, the United Arab Emirates, Algeria, and Iraq.
