Dangerous Alliances
Lise Garon
Price: $ 27.5

This analytically original and empirically rich study of the Maghreb¿s highly erratic encounter with democratization in recent years can be read on three levels:

An illuminating study of the complex and very diverse encounters between civil society and the authorities in Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco, as opposition has built up in each society and those in power have confronted the pressures for democratization.

A nuanced examination of the role of the media in particular - both within these countries and internationally - as contested, but often compliant, terrain between governments and dissidents.

A significant contribution to political sociology's understanding - via the development of a dynamic systems model that incorporates the existence of fundamental conflict - of how democratic institutions can become institutionalized, and of the constant possibility of any democratic transition being reversed.
