The Dawn of the Arab Uprisings : End of an Old Order? Hardback
Edited by Bassam Haddad, Rosie Bsheer, Ziad Abu-Rish
This is a one-stop introduction to the multifaceted phenomenon of the 'Arab Spring', from the writers of Jadaliyya. Covering the full range of issues involved in these historic events, from political economy and the role of social media, to international politics, gender, labour and the impact on culture, these firsthand accounts explore the inspirational uprisings in a way unavailable through mainstream Western and Arab media.
Covering all the major centres of disruption, including Tunisia, Egypt, Syria, Libya and Bahrain, the writers also look further afield, to Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Palestine, and Iraq.
The Dawn of the Arab Uprisings is the best place to start for anyone wanting to understand and interpret these dramatic events.
