Stephen King argues against the view that free markets and democracy go hand .

Stephen King argues against the view that free markets and democracy go hand in hand in transitional political economies. The author tries to argue that economic liberalization in Tunisia promoted wealthy rural elites who blocked democratizing tendencies by offering new ("neo-traditional") patron-client networks that strengthened the authoritarian regime. Dr. King joins a number of observers who view structural adjustment programs in the Arab world and elsewhere as reinforcing authoritarian trends. The argument is straightforward, and the book is a good, quick read for undergraduates as well as graduate students and analysts who grapple with these problems.

... a very important contribution to contemporary debates on economic and political reform in developing countries. Based on interviews King conducted himself, this is an honest, unvarnished examination and critique of propositions that are treated like gospel." ―Lisa Anderson

In Liberalization against Democracy, Stephen J. King argues that, in contrast to prevailing views, pro-market economic reforms in Tunisia did not foster democratization. Instead, state-led economic liberalization facilitated the reorganization of authoritarian rule and contributed to the subversion of democratic tendencies at both the national and local levels. In addition to King’s analysis of neo-liberal economic transformation and regime change at the national level, his book offers a rare local-level analysis of these processes, based on the author’s extensive fieldwork in the rural community of Tebourba. King’s focus on the local level of analysis is particularly valuable. His community study shows firsthand how local elites have manipulated cultural traditionalism in order to sustain market-oriented reforms. This rich account clearly delineates the pathways by which pro-market reforms in Tunisia have fostered corporatism, clientelism, and authoritarianism.
