Arab Society in Revolt the West's Mediterranean Challenge

For every pithy conceptualization of complex events, there are additional lenses throughwhich to examine them. One of the several virtues of this book is precisely that it bringsdifferent perspectives to bear on the complexity, diversity, and uncertainty of recent andcurrent events in the Arab world. The thirteen authors concentrate on the critical socialforces shaping the region-demography, religion, gender, telecommunication connectivity, and economic structures-and they are painstakingly analyzed and evaluated.-from the foreword by Strobe Talbott, president of the Brookings Institution>

  • "This work examines areas of change particularly relevant in the southern Mediterranean: demography and migration, Islamic revival and democracy, rapidly changing roles of women in Arab society, the Internet in Arab societies, commercial and social entrepreneurship as change factors, and the economics of Arab transitions. The book then looks at those cultural and religious as well as political and economic factors that have influenced the Western response, or lack of it, to the Arab Spring as well as the policy options that remain open. The Arab Spring will be remembered as a period of great change for the Arab states of North Africa and the eastern Mediterranean. Facing fundamental transitions in governance, these countries are also undergoing profound social, cultural, and religious changes. The European Union and the United States, caught unprepared by the uprisings, now must address the inescapable challenges of those changes. How will the West respond to these new realities, particularly in light of international economic uncertainty, European Union ambivalence toward a "cohesive foreign policy," and declining U.S. influence abroad? The book explains and interprets the societal transformations occurring in the Arab Muslim world, their ramifications for the West, and possible policy options for dealing with this new world."
