In this book talk, Bassam Haddad will talk about his new book, Business Networks in Syria: The Political Economy of Authoritarian Resilience (Stanford University Press, 2011), which addresses the legacy of state-business relations and its impact on social and regional polarization in Syria. Particular attention will be given to the policies that business networks engendered under the rubric of "economic liberalization," from the 1980s until the establishment of the Social Market Economy in 2005. The author will also address the implications of Syria's political-economic development pattern on the current uprising.
