"One of the best analysts of the contemporary Arab world." (Le Monde)
"What happened to the 2011 Arab revolutions? They reverberated throughout the Middle East and North Africa and around the globe, influencing movements from Occupy to the indignados. Even after the Arab Spring had mostly passed, the wave they helped initiate continued in Gezi Park, the Corbyn and Sanders campaigns, and Black Lives Matter...Drawing on sources in Arabic, English, and French, Gilbert Achcar's Morbid Symptoms: Relapse in the Arab Uprising offers the clearest and most comprehensive analysis of the fate of these revolutions[This book] is a sobering yet generous account of the Arab people's fight for true liberation and the lessons that have been learned from that struggle." (Kevin B. Anderson)
