The Information Revolution and the Middle East

The Information Revolution and the Middle East

This chapter analyzes changes in patterns of communication in the Arab world and their import for U.S. policy. It surveys how technology is changing the information environment in the region, drawing special attention to the effects of mid-tech technologies that are inexpensive, easy to use, and ubiquitous in much of the region. It then examines the probable effects of those changes on politics, governments, and societies in the region, and concludes with a consideration of the implications of those changes for U.S. policymakers.
