Ethics & International Affairs Volume 6 (1992): Articles in "Ethics & International Affairs" Vol. 6: Remaking the Middle East: The Prospects for Democracy and Stability [Abstract]

Dec 2, 1992

This essay is an exploration of the ramifications for the Middle East of the profound transformations in global politics implied in the end of the Cold War and the birth of a new, American-dominated world order. In doing so, Anderson takes up an issue posed since the birth of many of today's Middle Eastern states after World War I: the influence of great-power politics in the Middle East and within the individual states of the region which, added to local traditions, result in an explosive mix. She concludes with the prospects for Middle East democracy in the new world order.
