This paper discusses Islam and modernity. Specifically, the paper looks at Saudi Arabia and democracy. The paper argues that Saudi Arabia, like most Islamic countries in the Middle East, is not following a Western developmental path and therefore, that democracy in these countries is not going to be like democracy in the west.

From the Paper:

"Saudi Arabia and Democracy Middle Eastern Islamic countries are usually seen as primitive and backwards by Western Scholars. For example, In Iran: Change in Islam; Islam and Change Nikki R. Keddie argues, The progress-oriented secularist concentration of most Western and Middle Eastern scholars not only prevented them from foreseeing major developments, but skewed their view of the past, including ideological and religious history (Keddie 528). Even though many of these societies may appear to be primitive and backwards to most developed countries they are constantly developing."
