Product Details

Arab Spring and Its LegaciesThe essays in this edited volume seek to understand the regional and international ramifications of the wave of protest demonstrations that swept across West Asia and North Africa in the early 2010s, both on the ground and online. Dissatisfaction with political repression and corruption, economic difficulties and inequities, and a desire for freedom and democracy all played a role in the Arab Spring uprisings. It deposed long-standing dictatorships, ushering in a period of insecurity and instability that would have long-term consequences for the region’s political economy and international relations. Although the protests have ended, the legacy of that turbulent era will live on, most notably in the acceleration of regional change and transformation.

“At a time when many observers regard the Arab Spring as an established fact, this volume offers a sober reflection by situating the events within a historical structural setting and a complex international geopolitical context. A highly recommended text, especially for those seeking a nuanced understanding of the interactions between local actors and non-Western powers, particularly India and China, as well as how and why their roles are constructed as they appear in today’s debate.”
