Revolution Is The Choice Of The People: Crisis and Revolt in the Middle East & North Africa
More than ten years on from the Egyptian revolution of January 2011, Anne Alexander looks at the great wave of revolts that have shaken the region in the decade since, examining the political economy of the Middle East, the nature of the regimes and the factors which shaped the upheavals. Using a Marxist analysis, it examines the fate of those revolts, the emergence of counter-revolutionary forces and the potential for renewed uprisings and more far-reaching change in the years ahead.
“Anne Alexander’s book provides an in-depth account of the power structures and popular resistance in the Middle East. A must read for activists, academics and anyone who’s interested in the region’s history and future.” Hossam el-Hamalawy
