- Annotation Offers an in-depth discussion of fundamentals and performance of monarchies in the Middle East. Focuses on the roots and characteristics of these monarchies, and examines causes of the collapse of some and the longevity of others. Looks at performance of present-day monarchies and problems they face, using case studies and comparative essays to illustrate varying capacities of the region's monarchies to cope with modernity during the 20th century. The author is associate professor in the Department of Middle Eastern and African Studies and senior research associate at the Moshe Dyan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies, Tel Aviv University.
