Summary
This book is an analysis of the dynamics behind the revolutions in the Middle East, revolutions that blind-sided many in the West who previously understood the Arab world only through the prisms of oil, terrorism, or Israel. It shows how the protest movements evolved, what has gone right, and how the experience of Syria shows how thngs can go wrong. The author argues that the success of the Arab Spring lies in how freedom and justice are realized, and whether fledgling governments and movements can reconcile and accommodate nationalism and Islam with democracy
