The Arab Spring unexpectedly developed in late 2010 with peaceful protests in a number of Arab countries against long-standing, entrenched regimes, and rapid political change across the region ensued. The Arab Spring: Change and Resistance in the Middle East examines these revolutions and their aftermath. Noted authorities writing specifically for this volume contribute chapters focusing on countries directly or indirectly involved, illuminating the immediate and long-term impacts of the revolutions in the region and throughout the world. A thoughtful concluding chapter ties together key themes, while also delineating persistent myths and misinterpretations. This is an essential volume for students and scholars of the Middle East, as well as anyone seeking a fuller understanding of region and what may lie ahead.

"The best general book on the Arab Spring so far. Covers all the ground. Makes all the necessary distinctions between the popular uprisings. And draws many useful lessons."
—Roger Owen, Harvard University
"This collection is the most comprehensive to appear since the Arab Spring' erupted at the end of 2010. Part I includes contributions on Tunisia, Egypt and Libya that completed revolutions, Syria that is still undergoing one, and Saudi Arabia and Jordan that have so far managed to avoid them. Part II concentrates on the regional and international responses to the 'Arab Spring'. The collection is bookended by the editors' thoughtful introductory chapter framing the topic and a perceptive concluding chapter by the historian James Gelvin. This book is highly recommended."
—Philip S. Khoury, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
