    In the name of 'Civil Society' Don Eberly s new book shows how private sector initiatives outshine government s response to needs around the world.   Civil society played a critical role in democratic transitions in Eastern Europe and Latin America. To the disappointment of many, it hasn’t played that role in the Arab world. This book examines the ways in which Arab civil society actors have attempted to influence public policies. In particular, the book studies the drive towards a change of policies that affect women.
