Insight into Tunisia

Readers looking for background on the upheaval in Tunisia have sought out Eva Bellin’s 2002 book Stalled Democracy: Capital, Labor, and the Paradox of State-Sponsored Development, which focuses on Tunisia as a classic example of a stalled democracy. The Foreign Affairs review of the book said: “In a detailed study of Tunisia, Bellin finds that some governmental development schemes that explicitly encourage the private sector can better enable private capital and labor to defend their interests. Stalled Democracy contributes to our understanding of the relationship between development and democratization throughout the world.”
