MEDIA REVIEWS
'During the Arab uprisings, my first port of call every day was Jadaliyya to understand and interpret the events. This book will be a much-treasured volume' -- Dr Laleh Khalili, SOAS, University of London
'The outburst of the Arab Revolutions demands imaginative and novel perspectives on the Arab world, and Jadaliyya has managed to provide a unique forum covering the region with a fresh approach to its issues and problems' -- Fawwaz Traboulsi, author of A History of Modern Lebanon
'Jadaliyya has established itself as an indispensable source dealing with the contemporary Arab world. This collection of its pieces on the Arab uprisings is perhaps the best introduction to the political movements that have shaken that region' -- Talal Asad, City University of New York
'A primer of importance not only to students of the 'Arab spring', but also to those concerned with protest more generally. Registering both the exhilarating optimism and crushing disappointment of contemporary political life, this volume gives voice to some of the possibilities for and impasses to political transformation' -- Lisa Wedeen, Mary R. Morton Professor of Political Science and the College, University of Chicago
'As contemporary reflections, these writings capture the unfolding of revolutionary events as they happened and convey the uncertainties, hopes and disappointments of collective worlds being remade' -- Timothy Mitchell, Columbia University
