- Eye Opening
The Arab Spring uprisings of 2011 electrified the world, but their aftermath – bloodshed, war and a return to autocracy – horrified onlookers. In this thought-provoking text, legal scholar Noah Feldman reflects on the movement’s successes and failures, delivering fresh insights and lucid arguments for the historical and moral significance of the Arab Spring. Readers may disagree with some of his interpretations and conclusions, but those who wish to understand the modern history of the Arab world or the risks of struggles for self-determination will find Feldman’s book essential reading.
