Washington, DC, March 20, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- In Brown Swan Publisher's first release, Catherine Claxton-Dong, Ph.D., brings her research on past mass mobilizations of the working class to bear on the situation in the Middle East today.
According to Dr. Claxton-Dong, her data indicates "troubling signs that opportunities for democracy may be slipping away."
In her book, Claxton-Dong paints a picture of people during working class revolts who are inclined to favor traditional hierarchies (like monarchies), who are generally timid when it comes to force, and who have a preference for being led, rather than leading.
She makes a strong case that this is a unique historical moment that can normalize western relations with the Middle East forever, while cautioning against new dangers arising from a hands-off approach from western governments.
Brown Swan Publishers thinks it's important that analyses like these - too long for conventional articles - become available to political decision makers and activists in a timely manner.
