Summary
The monarchical presidential regimes that prevailed in the Arab world for so long looked as though they would last indefinitely.until events in Tunisia and Egypt made clear their time was up. This book exposes for the first time the origins and dynamics of a governmental system that largely defined the Arab Middle East in the 20th century
Summary
Examines the circumstances that permit families to maintain prolonged and virtually unopposed rule in Arab countries, and assesses how recent revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia may permanently change the political dynamics of the region
