It examines and explores the complex and myriad issues that have, unfortunately, stymied and real changes and developments in the current Arabian world.
The author, Ayman Aborabh, takes the time and trouble to reexamine these issues by introducing new and groundbreaking ways of thinking that the author hopes will challenge his readers to understand and embrace and what is commonly described as western philosophy and to meld these with the current political realities and politics that exist within the Arab world.
He is candid in his observations, but he levens this with a good deal of humour. He takes the works of the likes of Plato, Machiavelli, Burke and Hobbes and triex to illustrate his points by picturing how these great minds from previous ages would examine the political makeup of the states of modern Arabia.
He also features two "normal" Arabian citizens who he has arguing vital questions on freedom, democracy and on their ordinary lives.
Although a serious academic work it is written in an open and approachable style, the author aims it at universities that offer courses on modern Arabian politics and the like.
It is published by Matador at £13.99.
The author also has a YouTube channel https://youtube.com/omelseiasa which is in the Arabian language.
