Thirty years after independence, North African countries face a number of local, regional, and international difficulties that challenge the power and leadership of local states within the region. Growing protest against the privileges of state elites, the economic consolidation and growing politicization of migrant communities in the European Union, and the failure to create successful organizations in North Africa, along with a powerful backlash against the cultural, political, and economic pretensions of once seemingly invincible states, have brought the region to the verge of long-term instability. This book is the first wide-ranging reevaluation of development in North Africa in almost thirty years. Paying little attention to the cultural issues that have long marked analyses of the region, the majority of the authors in this collection describe development within the framework of comparative political economy and focus on issues such as the role of power and the autonomy of the state; state-society relations; the uniqueness of rentier development; and the special, historically created, sensitive and vulnerable relationship of North Africa as a peripheral region to its more powerful neighbor, the European Union.
