Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
In early 2014, a lot of what can be found in this collectively authored can be fairly described as overtaken by events (OBE), but the overarching theme that populates the vast majority of these pages is one of caution. No one could have predicted the extent to which the Obama administration would withdraw from the region and leave a vacuum for countries like Russia and China to fill. It's probably a safe bet to assume that back in mid-2011, most people thought the U.S. would actually do something to influence events in Syria, so I won't play Monday morning quarterback in that regard.

This book is a snapshot that was assembled by a group of incredibly learned scholars at the most volatile time in the Middle East during the past 30 years easily. Three years since the start of those changes, this book still provides a wealth of insights into what happened in those early days, and what that will mean for the future.

Published shortly after the events of the Arab Spring, these essays provide valuable immediate perspectives on various aspects of the uprisings. Strongly recommend to students of political science and international relations.
