Journal special issue: Inside the Authoritarian State

The latest issue of Columbia University's "Journal of International Affairs" is dedicated to the theme, "Inside the Authoritarian State" (65 [1], fall/winter 2011).

Quote (Editors' Foreword): "[W]hile many scholars have focused their attention on the causes of the Arab Spring revolutions - asking 'Why there?' and 'Why now?' - our aim is deeper. We asked our contributors ... to examine the factors that underpin regime durability, not democratization. Our questions are, 'Why not there?' and 'Why not now?'"
