The Third Wave: Protest and Revolution in the Middle East

The Third Wave: Protest and Revolution in the Middle East

Abstract:

In December 2010, an unemployed Tunisian youth named Mohammed Bouazizi set himself on fire. This act ignited demonstrations throughout the Arab world, led to the downfall of the regimes in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Yemen and sparked civil war in Syria and Yemen. The Arab Spring was the third wave of awakening in the Arab world since the establishment of the Arab territorial states after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. This book is the first in-depth Hebrew examination of the storm of the Arab Spring.
