Expertise and insights, but out a tad too quick perhaps? June 17 2013
By A. Spence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Marc Lynch does a fine job in The Arab Uprising providing much needed clarity and context to events that have largely taken the world by surprise. His expertise and behind the scenes insights are evident throughout and will serve those who wish to better understand what has happened and what may yet happen in Middle East politics, as well as the implications for United States foreign policy in the region.

I do feel though that this was a book published too quickly. It would have benefited from the author permitting more time for the events to play out and for his own thoughts to form. Too often, the book is descriptive and repetitive.

There's a need for informed about analysis of the events of the Arab Spring and The Arab Uprising serves the purpose for now. However as further volumes come out benefiting from waiting for events to settle down and for their authors to more fully develop their work, I think the importance of this book will quickly decline. Until then, it's a valuable work and an ideal primer for those wishing to make sense of a fundamental shift in the Middle East

Fascinating and very timely July 5 2013
By Nancy Shinno - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very thorough and interesting analysis of the Arab Uprising. I learned the differences between the preceding governance in each country involved as it affected the outcome differently. It was fascinating to learn of all the variables in dealing with an authoritarian regime.

The Arab Uprising:The Unfinished Revolutions of the New Middle East Sept. 21 2012
By ram - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is an excellent review of the on-going political upheavals in the Arab world;it is comprehensive,filled with a great deal of information which has a touch of credibility,objectivity and authenticity.A must for all those interested in that region and for the lay reader as well.
The knowledgeable reader will be able to deepen their analysis but I can't recommend it for an intelligent New York Times or Eco July 9 2014
By tortuga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read Lynch's blog on Foreign Policy regularly and looked forward to this book for use in a class on the Middle East. I may still use it but overall it seems rushed into print without enough thought given to how to communicate to the non-expert. Every sentence seems to try to synthesize about three different ideas. The first few chapters on history are especially cursory and not well organized--going quickly over events the author understands well but which are not explained in any depth. The knowledgeable reader will be able to deepen their analysis but I can't recommend it for an intelligent New York Times or Economist reader unless they have been keeping up very diligently with developments in the region over the past 20 years. Less informed readers will not get very far. A missed opportunity.

Interesting vision of the uprisings I would have liked more information on the political economy of the uprisings it takes into account nevertheless other important factors of the culture.
