The first chapter in a new free serialised e-book 'The Future of the Middle East' co-produced by Global Policy and Arab Digest, and edited by Hugh Miles and Alastair Newton is out now. Author Andrew Hammond explores the continuities and new developments in representations of Islam, politics and violence in the Middle East. Please check back regularly for the latest chapters.

The essays in this book were all written by David Held under the shadow of 9/11 and the calamitous wars fought afterwards. We are at a crossroads. One road points to authoritarianism, while another opens up a more hopeful cosmopolitan future. The path to authoritarianism could be created by the dangerous drift in the world order, and a search for decisive solutions from ‘strong man’ leaders. But, as the volume argues, there are alternatives.

I and many other observers see the world changing dramatically around us - from technology, from geopolitics, from economic and financial turbulence, from the rise of the rest. We figure the best global thinking needs to be joined up across fields. Yet others might still disagree on both hypotheses. Regardless, Global Policy is the right journal for our times, and what will emerge from its pages will inform debate of global significance.
