(p.1) Introduction
The Changing Middle East

Bahgat Korany

American University in Cairo Press

One important caveat needs to be considered. Even before U.S. President Barack Obama emphasized the primacy of change as a driving force, globalization has meant that today there is little room for static phenomena or their analysis. Mainstream vision and analysis of the Middle East seem to disregard this dynamism and to insist that the region, one of the most internationally penetrated, does not change. Elements such as the region's demographic evolution and its repercussions, new Islamic movements and “new preachers”, the increasing salience of gender issues, literary artistic debates, and the mushrooming of civil society organizations all come readily to mind.

Keywords:   Middle East, Barack Obama, globalization, Islamic movements, civil society
