New Publication on Arab Spring

It’s more than six months now since the ousting of former President Hosni Mubarak (who’s being tried right now).

Viewpoints, publication by the Middle East Institute (MEI), have issued a new collection entitled Revolution and Political Transformation in the Middle East: Agents of Change.

MEI has said that this is the first of three publications dealing with Arab Spring.

The contributions are:

Stephen Zunes : he Power of Strategic Nonviolent Action in Arab Revolutions.

Srdja Popovic and Kristina Djuric :The Real Force Behind the “Bad Year for Bad Guys.”

Charles Schmitz: Yemen’s Spring: Whose Agenda?

Ronald Bruce St John: The February 17th Revolution in Libya.



Kristian Coates Ulrichsen has a nice piece entitled The Political Transformation of the Middle East and North Africa

Tarek Masoud  has written a lengthy article at Journal of Democracy  entitled The Road to (and from) Liberation Square.” (My impression is that  Tarek is a good researcher but he once wrote in Foreign Policy defending Gamal Mubarak, arguing that Mubarak’s son is best hope for democracy.)
