Title: The Middle East and International Relations Theory: a Shift in Perspective?
Authors: Legrenzi, Matteo
Issue Date: 1997
Publisher: Padova, Editoriale Programma
Abstract: The purpose of the article is to explore which model in international relations theory better describes the international politics of the Middle East. The question is tackled of whether "Middle East" is still a valuable sub-division of the global system for the purpose of international relations analysis. Then a model is put forward which draws a continuum between the two idea types of "realism" and "complex interdepedence". Country relationships in the Middle East are seen as falling somewhere along this continuum. It is finally argued that in recent years a shift is apparent along this continuum in the direction of complex interdependence so that the international politics of the region can be characterized increasingly less as a zero-sum game
