From Resilience to Revolution

This chapter explains how domestic conflict and geopolitical mediation combined to form a striking pattern across the Middle East. The more that outside hegemons intervened to help local rulers squash domestic opposition, the less durable their regimes turned out over time. External support was destructive in the long term, because it deterred national leaders from making inclusive bargains with opposing social forces and encouraged reliance upon repressive and exclusionary institutions.
