But despite the popularity of the uprisings; the overthrow of dictatorships; and revolt's huge costs in human life and economic hardship, the Arab world remains a tense region, the so-called Arab Spring an unfinished cause. This collection of original essays by 21 internationally respected scholars and experts explores the underlying tensions and conditions that gave rise to the revoltsocial, political, economic, and ideologicaland explains how Arab citizens are defining new destinies for their societies.
