Launched in 1992, the Civil Society in the Middle East program brought together dozens of leading scholars to analyze political life through an exploration of civil society within the states of the region. A wealth of new material on non government organizations (NGOs), unions, political parties and professional syndicates is offered.The two volumes contain original studies of Algeria, Gaza, Iran, Israel, Turkey, the Sudan, Yemen and the Arab states of the Gulf. Collectively, these contributions challenge profoundly the notion that civil society is alien to the Middle East.As a two volume set, Civil Society in the Middle East is the most comprehensive analysis of state-society relations in the Middle East that is available.Table of ContentsVOLUME 1:Augustus Richard Norton, 'The Future of Civil Society in the Middle East.'Raymond A.
