Revue de presse

This book is well written and highly readable, and given its simple Q&A format, it would appeal to both scholars and lay readers ... Well worth reading! (Muhammad Khan, The Muslim News)

This impressive achievement brings together a vast amound of infromation in a lucid manner. Highly recommended for general and academic libraries as an objective, accurate analysis of the Arab Spring of 2011. (Library Journal)

A remarkably readable, informative, slim volume ... Of particular worth is James Gelvin's ability to show how the protests are interlinked, yet also independent of each other ... an excellent primer for the general reader (Publishers Weekly)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Beginning in December 2010 popular revolt swept through the Middle East, shocking the world and ushering in a period of unprecedented unrest. Protestors took to the streets to demand greater freedom, democracy, human rights, social justice, and regime change. What caused these uprisings? What is their significance? And what are their likely consequences?
In an engaging question-and-answer format, The Arab Uprisings explores all aspects of the revolutionary protests that have rocked the Middle East. Historian James Gelvin begins with an overview--What sparked the Arab uprisings? Where did the demands for democracy and human rights come from? How appropriate is the phrase "Arab Spring"?--before turning to specific countries around the region. He looks at such topics as the role of youth, labor, and religious groups in Tunisia and Egypt and discusses why the military turned against rulers in both countries. Exploring the uprisings in Libya and Yemen, Gelvin explains why these two states are considered "weak," why that status is important for understanding the upheavals there, and why outside powers intervened in Libya but not in Yemen. Next, Gelvin compares two cases that defied expectations: Algeria, which experts assumed would experience a major upheaval after Egypt's, and Syria, which experts failed to foresee. He then looks at the monarchies of Morocco, Jordan, and the Gulf, exploring the commonalities and differences of protest movements in each. The final chapter discusses the implications of the uprisings. What do they mean for the United States? For Iran? Has al-Qaeda been strengthened or weakened? What effects have the uprisings had on the Israel-Palestine conflict? What conclusions might we draw from the uprisings so far?
For anyone wishing to understand the dramatic events in the Middle East, The Arab Uprisings is the place to turn.

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Ce livre offre une information très riche sur la série de soulèvements qui ont agité le monde arabe. Il montre la diversité des cas, les succès ou les échecs, les élections et les massacres, les interventions extérieures et les cas où l'occident a détourné son regard... Il laisse une certaine inquiétude au lecteur à propos du poids croissant des Islamistes et des "rois du pétrole". L'Europe est aux premières loges face au monde arabe post-printemps, et devra bien comprendre qu'elle doit prendre son destin en main à l'heure où les Etats Unis se tournent de plus en plus vers le Pacifique.

James Gelvin's "Arab Uprisings" is a must read if you've been trying to follow the events unfolding in the Middle East. I have tried to keep up with the "where" and "why of each rebellion and/or revolution, but the sheer numbers often made it confusing that often left me with more questions than answers. Gelvin's book was what I was looking for. It sheds light on the historical, political, and cultural aspects that each country has undergone by linking the various uprisings in the differing states (such as Tunisia and Egypt, Libya and Yemen, Algeria and Syria, and the monarchies). The book is clearly written, and the Q &A format makes for an easy but substantive read. Each answer reads like a mini-essay, and I particularly enjoyed the answers to "Where did the phrase `Arab Spring' come from?", "How appropriate is it to describe events in the Arab world?", "What are the ten biggest myths about the Egyptian uprising?", and "Was Qaddafi crazy or crazy like a fox?" The author obviously knows his history as well as the contemporary issues confronting the region. (His "Modern Middle East" and "Israel/Palestine Conflict" are also must reads.) The last section of "Arab Uprisings" is illuminating in showing the impact of the uprisings on both the American and Iranian positions in the region, on the Israel-Palestine Conflict, and on al-Qaeda. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Gelvin fulfills his promise with the book's sub-title, "What Everyone Needs to Know," because I walked away having a greater understanding of what's going on in the Middle East. I now can watch the continuing unfolding of events with both the information and confidence that the author has provided.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful book 15 février 2012

First off, I feel I have to disclose that Gelvin is actually my professor. Normally, I'd be concerned about creating a biased review but the book is so well-written that the fact that I am in his lecture periods has little bearing. The book is written in question-answer form allowing for clear, straight to the point answers. Gelvin avoids "fluff" and answers the questions in the same conversational manner he uses during lecture that engages his students (and the reader). I found the book easy to get through while providing the information expected of it. It truly is a great read; it is simple to understand but not lacking in necessary information.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book which includes audible 27 mai 2014

I have class next semester and I bought this book earlier because I'm an international student and it comes audio with it and that will help me to improve my english language.
for those how native speaker I recommend them to read about Arabia revolution from many books in order to get clear information. I think this book mention writer's thought as well.
- if you interest to have this book please compare it with real live in Arab countries.
- the audio save your time if you interest only to listen.
- If you have a kindle device. please pay the E-book first then the audio because it comes cheaper after you buy e-book.
- if your first language not enough I give you a high recommend to pay it with audio to improve your language.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Arab Uprisings 27 janvier 2014
Par tracksmith - Publié sur
This is a good book about the the Arab Uprisings, reporting on Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Syria, Yemen, and Libya. The monarchies of Saudia Arabia, the Hashimite Kingdom of Jordan, and Morocco are also discussed. How these uprisings have affected Al-Qaeda are interesting as well. Even if you are not into Middle East current events, this will help you understand why the people in these countries took to the streets, protesting their governments.

This book was obviously written very soon after these events occurred, so it is interesting to look at the events that occurred and what the contributing factors were. This book gives a much fuller explanation of the uprisings and why and how they escalated.
