"Wissam Yafi is one of the emerging young leaders of the new Middle East on whom the region's destiny rests. This ambitious book ranges over the economic, social, political, and technological determinants of the fortunes of the region and charts a democratic course for its future." - Dani Rodrik, Rafiq Hariri Professor of International Political Economy, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University "In this engaging and original analysis, Wissam S. Yafi outlines the socio-economic, political, and religious dynamics in the Arab region from a perspective under which systemic change seems anything but unexpected. Shedding new light upon the interaction between tradition and modernization in the Arab world, he provides a convincing account of why democratic self-determination ought to be the only viable outcome. Sincerely written, bold and insightful, this book reflects the authenticity of someone who grew up on both sides of the Arab-American cultural boundary." - Theodoros M. Diasakos, Collegio Carlo Alberto
WISSAM S. YAFI is a technologist and international development Harvard (USA) scholar.
