9780231163194: Voices of the Arab Spring: Personal Stories from the Arab Revolutions
Rezension:

There's a wonderful cumulative power to reading the personal narratives. They're gripping, extremely poignant, often heartbreaking, and astonishing. It's long overdue to finally have unmediated access to "regular" citizens' experiences and recollections. -- Mona El-Ghobashy This collection of "personal stories" is of enormous importance, not least because it is not yet another piece of research and analysis by scholars who focus on the Middle East, its politics and religious history. The speakers in these narratives are not specialist scholars, but rather participants in the process of change and, all too often, victims of the regimes in the countries and regions covered. Their accounts provide the reader with vivid images of the events that may have already been "covered" by the world's media, but have not, thus far at least, emerged with the kind of crystalline reality and sheer variety that is to be found within the covers of this book. -- Roger Allen, Professor Emeritus, University of Pennsylvania Al-Saleh brings together personal stories from the democratic uprisings... The cumulative effect of the pieces is to insist that leaders, in the Middle East and outside of it, must listen to and heed the voices of the Arab Spring before lasting positive change can take place.
