The People Want: A Radical Exploration of the Arab Uprising

9780863561658: The People Want: A Radical Exploration of the Arab Uprising

'The people want - ': So began the slogans chanted by millions of protesters across the Arab world in 2011, as their long-suppressed craving for democracy revealed itself. But huge social and economic problems were also laid bare by the protestors' demands, signalling the beginning of a long and complex revolutionary process. In this landmark work, noted Middle East specialist Gilbert Achcar analyses the socio-economic features that hinder the region's development, as well as the social and political dynamics of the uprisings, and sheds light on the various movements that use Islam as a political banner and their historical connections with the oil monarchies. This updated edition includes a new chapter assessing the key developments that have unfolded since 2013.
