Politics & society in the contemporary Middle East (Book, ) [contractorprofitzone.com]To many observers the Middle East state system since the Arab uprisings stands at a critical juncture, displaying contradictory patterns of fragility and durability. The uprisings, which started late in , were revolutionary in their initial impact, but beyond Tunisia, it is the counter-revolutionary movement which has proved more durable. However, the region has witnessed regime changes alongside intense levels of popular mobilization, violence and transnational activism. The results have been highly destabilizing, resulting in challenges, not only to regimes, but to the very sovereignty and territorial integrity of states. This, in turn, has contributed to a shifting regional power balance and repeated episodes of external intervention.

Polling and Analysis. Overwhelming percentages of Muslims in many countries want Islamic law sharia to be the official law of the land, according to a worldwide survey by the Pew Research Center. Moreover, Muslims are not equally comfortable with all aspects of sharia: While most favor using religious law in family and property disputes, fewer support the application of severe punishments — such as whippings or cutting off hands — in criminal cases. The survey also shows that Muslims differ widely in how they interpret certain aspects of sharia, including whether divorce and family planning are morally acceptable. The survey involved a total of more than 38, face-to-face interviews in plus languages. Attitudes toward Islamic law vary significantly by region.
