Constitutionalism developed as a worldwide political movement over the course of the nineteenth century, making its impact felt in the Middle East, particularly in the Ottoman Empire 1. In purely legalistic terms, it promoted a system of regulations in which political power was both legitimised and limited by the law. It was thus closely correlated to attempts to establish an administration based on rational and legal principles which marked the transformation of the State in the Middle East. Constitutionalism may however be taken in a broader sense, in which it is the main vehicle for redefining politics in line with the principles of popular sovereignty.

This is a story unlike any we have previously published. It is much longer than the typical New York Times Magazine feature story; in print, it occupies an entire issue. The product of some 18 months of reporting, it tells the story of the catastrophe that has fractured the Arab world since the invasion of Iraq 13 years ago, leading to the rise of ISIS and the global refugee crisis. The geography of this catastrophe is broad and its causes are many, but its consequences — war and uncertainty throughout the world — are familiar to us all. It is unprecedented for us to focus so much energy and attention on a single story, and to ask our readers to do the same.

Казалось, тучный шеф отдела обеспечения системной безопасности вот-вот рухнет на пол. - Мертв. Но это значит… значит… что мы не можем… - Это значит, что нужен другой план действий.  - Фонтейн, как обычно, говорил спокойно и деловито. Глаза Джаббы по-прежнему выражали шок и растерянность, когда сзади раздался душераздирающий крик: - Джабба.

Она знала, что это. Как и то, что шахта лифта защищена усиленным бетоном. Сквозь клубящийся дым Сьюзан кое-как добралась до дверцы лифта, но тут же увидела, что индикатор вызова не горит. Она принялась нажимать кнопки безжизненной панели, затем, опустившись на колени, в отчаянии заколотила в дверь и тут же замерла. За дверью послышалось какое-то жужжание, словно кабина была на месте.

Техник в оперативном штабе начал отсчет: - Пять. Четыре. Три. Эта последняя цифра достигла Севильи в доли секунды. Три… три… Беккера словно еще раз ударило пулей, выпущенной из пистолета.

На экране он видел комнату, в которой царил хаос. В этой комнате находилась Сьюзан.

Он схватил парня за рукав.  - У нее кольцо, которое принадлежит. Я готов заплатить. Очень. Двухцветный застыл на месте и зашелся в истерическом хохоте.
