Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The Middle East is suddenly a world transformed. In just one year since the Arab Spring was sparked, millions of citizens from Tunisia to Yemen have taken to the streets in revolution against the old regimes. Tyrants have been overthrown, repression is faltering, and a new generation has asserted itself in the Islamic world. From the editors of TIME comes The New Middle East, a fascinating book chronicling revolution and its impact on the world with eyewitness reporting, exclusive pictures and insightful analysis. In the midst of this upheaval, so much is new and changing: the rights of women, social media, national identity, the role of Islam in politics. Will the people get the economic and social opportunity they yearn for? What new benefits-and dangers-present themselves for the United States? TIME Middle East experts Bobby Ghosh, Aryn Baker, Karl Vick and other contributors paint a vivid portrait of a society in the throes of historic change.
