The book is divided into five sections, examining:
the trajectories of Islamist, Salafi, leftist, liberal, nationalist, and personalistic parties drawing from different countries;
the role political parties play in authoritarian and semi-authoritarian countries;
the centrality of political parties in democratic or democratising settings;
the relationship between parties and specific social constituencies, ranging from women to youth to tribes and sects; and
the policy positions of parties on a number of issues, including neo-liberal economics, identity, foreign policy and the role of violence.
This wide-ranging and systematic analysis is a key resource for students and scholars interested in party politics, democratization and authoritarianism, and the Middle East and North Africa.
