Product Overview

Anne Marie Baylouny examines previously undocumented effects ofneoliberal economic reforms on middle classes in the Middle East. As the state''ssafety network has been withdrawn, kin-based mutual aid associations -- organizedaround new definitions of kinship and identity and geared to contemporary market andlabor needs -- have taken its place. Such organizations provide a measure of socialand economic security for their members, and have come to dominate civil society inJordan and Lebanon. Based on extensive fieldwork and interviews with members, non-members, and policymakers, Privatizing Welfare in the Middle East providescompelling new insights into democratization, liberalization, and civilsociety.
