Very Good. B001BUBR1E Text free of underlining, writing and highlighting. How are the ancient cultures of the Middle East--some of which have remained substantially unchanged for twenty centuries--reacting to the industrial regimen of today? The Passing of Traditional Society illuminates the Middle East and its politics. Hailed as a pioneering study, the book relates recent economic developments and social changes in terms of humans responding to the sudden challenge of a new style of life. Here is a fascinating study in comparative culture. Through exposure to city ways, new jobs, and literacy, pastoral life at last is yielding to modernization. The role of the press, radio, and films receives special attention. "a splendid piece of work..."--Carleton S. Coon "Brilliantly arresting..."--Harold D. Lasswell "Here is a solid piece of social research that is indispensable in judging the rapid social changes that increasingly engulf Middle East Society."--The American Political Science Review 466 pages.
