Abstract

The political leadership in the Arab world has certain characteristics, which are based on historical, ideological, and social factors. Few of the Arab leaders have changed their traditional style, as in the case of Jordan, but the majority of them have not. In this paper the (prophetic‐Caliphal) model will be tested. The model has been introduced by Professor Al‐Khadra in (1974) and depicts the dynamics of political leadership in the Arab world. In order to avoid misunderstanding, the model will be called the (Charismatic‐Authoritative Model).
