It is time to rethink how we understand the Arab world.

Dispatches from the Arab Spring offers modes of analysis inspired by the methodology of revolt. It provides a comprehensive reintroduction to the entire region, not just those countries and spectacles that most captivated the media. The book collects writings by some of the world's most respected intellectuals who have turned their attention to the region. They are deeply aware of the national and local dynamics, schooled in the world of detail—where the devil lurks but so does hope.

Dispatches from the Arab Spring lays out a tentative map for the future, hewed of a comparative agenda for introducing the region to students, the public, and researchers, for tracking new actors, structural economic formations, and political possibilities. A truly global history that examines the prospects of a worldwide power shift from North to South.
