5.0 étoiles sur 5 A deep insight into the arab spring 18 mars 2012
Par Juanito
Marwan Bishara provides a deep insight into the arab spring. He shows the other face of the arab reality, the one much too rarely described by european media. As he retraces the history of the Middle East from the fall of the Ottoman Empire and the partition of the Middle East, he explains how colonial forces frustrated the first democratic attempts in the region. Starting from the death of the street vendor Mohamed Bouazizi in Tunisia, he gives a full account on how the arab spring sparkled, spreaded and unfolded in reaction against corrupted dictatorships incapable of bringing economic welfare and social justice to their countries in the post colonial era. When portraying the arab spring,its roots and causes, Marwan Bishara dismantles the widespread sophism: arab equals islamist. The narrative is fully and abundently documented as one can expect from the top journalist at Al Jazeera . Marwan Bishara's analysis is sharp and brillant - a cut above the rest - and yet sometimes too rethorical.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A promising, insightful book 26 mars 2012
Par Duane E. Campbell - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
The Invisible Arab.
This is an insightful and well written documentation of the recent political and cultural revolutions in the Arab world. The author Marwan Bishara benefits from his long service as a political writer for Al Jazeera T.V. He was documenting the both the dependency of the Arab states and the apparent docility of the Arab masses before the outbreaks of last years. He new and had interviewed many of the youthful leaders.
I compared the accounts with recent testimonies given for example by Tunisian labor activists touring in the U.S., and with well informed commentary on the revolutionary developments by writers from the area.
Marwan Bishara has it just right. He describes well the over twenty year efforts at organizing against political repression in several key countries including Egypt and Tunisia. The Arab Spring was built upon decades of hard work by sincere democrats. His description of the economic and political dependency of Arab oligarchs on U.S. funding and U.S. policies are well developed.
His own experience at Al Jazeera provides a valuable addition to the Western accounts of a social media revolution. Those watching for a facebook revolution need to recognize the transformative nature of non government satellite T.V. prior to the Arab Spring. This is well document in other sources including the U.S. government's own criticisms of Al Jazeera in covering the war in Iraq. The broad Arab populist first learned of alternative views and options often from AL Jazeera and only later adopted Facebook, Google and You tube technologies to tell their stories. The two inter dependent media forms restructured the narrative of the Middle East and broke the ideological dominance of the repressive states and families. To primarily focus on social media and only the last two years is to misunderstand the social forces in play.
Of course much remains unsettled. The Tunisian revolution opened the doors, and the Egyptian revolution is substantially unfinished. It will probably take years. At the same time it is vital that U.S. readers understand what is transforming the middle east so as to not simply fall in line with the vested interests in the U.S. State Department and U.S. capital that are projecting a particular political line. We don't know how the Arab Springs will be resolved. But, we need to learn and to know that U.S. intervention, both militarily and through advocacy groups are based primarily on the interests of U.S. forces, including oil and military. We should be promoting a democratic, non intervention policy. It will take years, perhaps decades for the several Arab states to resolve their revolutions. We as democrats should respect that. How many Arabs intervened in the U.S. War of Independence.
There are many U.S. and western pundits giving us advice. If we believe in democracy and development we need to read and understand a number of Arab voices on the rapidly changing situations from Baharain, to Iraq, to Syria, Lebanon and the West Bank. Marwan Bishara has provided an introduction to several of the important complex issues.
Much of my own work has been in the area of U.S. relations with Latin America. It has been a constant source of struggle to understand Latin America from sources other than those of the U.S. foreign policy establishment in both political parties.
Reading The Invisible Arab: the Promise and Peril of the Arab Revolution convinces me that we in the U.S. have a similar problem in our understanding of the dynamic changes occurring in the Arab lands. Probably our most important role from the U.S. will be to oppose or prevent U.S. military and economic interventions against the democratic efforts of forces in the Arab Spring.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Analysis 17 juillet 2014

Very good analysis of the evolution of the Arab world, and the rest of the world's reaction to (and biases toward) it. A bit of a heavy read at times due to repetition, but some things bear repeating!

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Deeply Disappointing 6 mars 2012
Par Dugan Kern - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
"The Invisible Arab" exemplifies all the risks of writing about sea-changing events in real time with few discernible benefits of timeliness. Anyone who has made an effort to follow the Arab spring beyond the headlines has nothing to gain from this book. Implicitly the book offers to elucidate "The Invisible Arab". What it attempts to make visible is a mystery. Those interested in the current political landscape and a competent rendering of their history will find this book lacking and superficial. Those interested in understand the role of western democracies in the subjugation of arab lands can find many better, detailed, nuanced books which do much more to bringing a human face behind the grand storyline.

Worst, the book has so many internal contradictions that it is impossible to call it anything more than a haphazard collection of opinions and assertions. Technology is simultaneously portrayed as not a factor in the storyline of the Arab spring and central to its development. "The West" (as if it were on nation or easily defined force of a quarter of humanity) is vilified as considering pan Arabism a dream, while at the same time the author writes at length about the lack of genuine pan-Arabism.

Since the book is a somewhat real-time account, I expected the epilogue to help tie together the quickly and loosely cobbled text into a couple themes and speculations. Instead, it is a continuation of the confused monologue from the preceding pages: happy to gratuitously criticize, hedging wherever real risk of judgement is apparent, and returning to tired themes that, despite the author efforts to refute them, seem to be reinforced.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Introduction to North African/Southwest Asian Revolutions 28 février 2012
Par Ayman - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Marwan Bishara, a political analyst for Al-Jazeera satellite news network, wrote an Arab-nationalist perspective essay about the ongoing revolutions in North Africa and Southwest Asia. The Invisible Arab: The Promise and Peril of the Arab Revolution is an easy read and would be a useful book assignment in college courses on the history of the region.

I read this in the course of preparing for a talk I gave about the revolutions in North Africa and Southwest Asia.

Highlights of the book for me were coverage of the L'Ancien Régime and North American and European support for its regimes, profiles of activists who have been working in these countries for years and explaining the variety hidden by the term Islamist.

I might disagree with Ustaz Marwan about the assertion that these revolutions are Arab, and the corollary that Al-Jazeera had an outstanding role in building the revolutions' Arab character. Recently, there have been popular opposition movements in Ivory Coast, Senegal and Nigeria. What about the movement of South American countries away from the U.S. sphere of influence? What about Hondurans' resistance to the U.S.-organized coup in 2009? In other words, all over the world, people are resisting the Washington consensus and the local stooges enforcing it. Nevertheless, Ustaz Marwan's assertions in this regard are certainly worth discussing.
