Editorial Reviews

Review

“Adeed Dawisha has written a masterful account of the Arab awakening and its historical roots. His assessment of the prospects for democracy and the challenge from Islamists is both insightful and deeply sobering.” (Seth G. Jones, author of Hunting in the Shadows: The Pursuit of al Qa’ida since 9/11)

“Adeed Dawisha has provided both a fluent overview and a useful historical background to the Arab Spring. It will be a book that all concerned with the Middle East need to read.” (Robert D. Kaplan, author of The Revenge of Geography)

“The call for change that has swept across the Arab world since January 2011 is one of the most significant and historical transformations of our time. Adeed Dawisha provides a wonderful account of why and how this tumult happened and what to expect of it in the years to come. Insightful and well-written this book is one of the most thoughtful analyses of the Arab Spring.” (Vali Nasr, author of The Dispensable Nation and The Shia Revival)

About the Author

Born in Baghdad, Adeed Dawisha is a University Distinguished Professor of Political Science at Miami University in Ohio. His many books include Iraq: A Political History and Arab Nationalism in the Twentieth Century: From Triumph to Despair.

he is not neutral, he sided against Syrian regime without taking in consideration the geopolitical disputes and how important throwing over president Assad in achieving western agenda in the Middle East.
