Reviews

“This book discusses a variety of important issues concerning the development of the party system, the political and voting behavior in the region’s states in the last two hundred years. [it] is very topical and especially important on the background of changes which took place in the states of the Middle East and North Africa in the last five years. The big advantage of the book is in the wide perspective view of politics in the Middle East and North Africa in general and the internal politics of the states in particular.”
