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
Foreword: Understanding Recent Social and Political Developments in the Middle East and North Africa: A Personal Odyssey, by Peter SluglettAcknowledgmentsIntroduction1. Tunisia2. Egypt3. Libya4. Yemen5. SyriaBibliography
"Narrated by dozens of activists and everyday individuals involved in the Arab Spring, this book documents the unprecedented events that led to the collapse of dictatorial regimes in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Yemen. Arab citizens were called to join the revolt during the second half of 2011, while the revolutionary moment was still unfolding. Their stories offer unique access to the message that inspired citizens to act, their experiences during revolt, and the lessons they learned from some of the most dramatic changes and appalling events to occur in the history of the Arab world. The riveting, revealing, and at times heartbreaking stories in this volume also include voices from Syria. Featuring participants from a variety of social and educational backgrounds and political commitments, these personal stories of action represent the true phenomenon of the Arab Spring's united though broad social movements, collective identities, and youthful character. For years, these participants lived under regimes that brutally suppressed free expression and protest. Their testimony speaks to the multifaceted emotional, psychological, and cultural factors motivating citizens to join together and fight, putting a human face on events that might seem abstract or impersonal to many in the West"--Provided by publisher.
