LINEAGES OF REVOLT: ISSUES OF CONTEMPORARY CAPITALISM IN THE MIDDLE EAST

LONDON MIDDLE EAST INSTITUTE

SOAS, UNIVERSITY OF LONDON BOOK LAUNCH 

Dear all,

You are invited to a panel discussion with Adam Hanieh, SOAS, Gilbert Achcar, SOAS, Jamie Allinson, University of Westminster and Brenna Bhandar, SOAS to mark the publication of Adam Hanieh’s Lineages of Revolt: Issues of Contemporary Capitalism in the Middle East (Haymarket Books, 2013) at 6.00pm here at SOAS on Wednesday 11 December 2013, please see below for details.

Drawing upon extensive empirical research, Lineages of Revolt tracks the major shifts in the region’s political economy over recent decades.  In this illuminating and original work, Adam Hanieh explores the contours of neoliberal policies, dynamics of class and state formation, imperialism and the nature of regional accumulation, the significance of Palestine and the Gulf Arab states, and the ramifications of the global economic crisis.  By mapping the complex and contested nature of capitalism in the Middle East, the book demonstrates that a full understanding of the uprisings needs to go beyond a simple focus on “dictators and democracy.”

All Welcome
