Politically and economically, that shift seems to portend the emergence of a post-American and perhaps even…

Location: , United Kingdom
Category: Social Sciences and Humanities
Start Date: 07-11-2012 Last Day: 07-14-2012
Abstract The conventional analyses of society-state relations in the Arabian Gulf region easily lend themselves to the erroneous thesis that countries in this region are devoid of the modern political currents and counter currents that have shaped most contemporary societies in the world. For some analysts, the Arabian Gulf states are nothing but an extension of the “oriental despotic” cultural logic according to which the state is always perceived as strong, authoritarian and coercive, ruling through petro-economic means over a passive and weak society. For others, the state-society relation has been collapsed into a form of tribal nationalism in which…
