The social and economic forces that worked together to bring the Ba'thist party to power in 1963: the failure of traditional and liberal leadership, an agrarian crisis, the development of party ideology, the politicization of the army and rural mobilization - are examined in this study. Dr Hinnebusch aims to show how the Ba'th's road to power shaped its ideology and the character of its rule. Attention is then given to the pillars of state power - the army, political organizations and the peasantry. The author concludes that the regime has pursued a dual strategy for maintaining power - placing kin and clientelist networks at the levers of coercive power and building structures based on the mass incorporation of the rural population.

Book Description Westview Press, U.S.A., 1990. Hard Cover. Condition: Good. This is an ex-college library book with most of the usual markings. Otherwise, the hardcover appears lightly used and is near very good with shelfwear and lightly bumped corners. There is no dust jacket (I believe it was issued without one). A nice example of a scarce book. Expedited international shipping is not available. The delivery expectation for international shipping is 7-32 business days, depending upon customer location. Ex-Library. Seller Inventory # 008738
