The LSE Middle East Centre will be releasing its first major publication in November 2013. This book will be one of the first critically comprehensive books written by leading scholars to examine the meanings and effects of the Arab popular uprisings on local, regional and international politics. The authors will reflect on the comparative causes and drivers behind the Arab uprisings and the prospects of political transition and pluralistic transformation and consolidation in the region.
This group of outstanding scholars will provide a mature set of ‘big picture’ perspectives of these seminal events from the multi-disciplinary perspective of the social sciences. The book will cross the line between Comparative Politics and International Relations and also include cross-disciplinary perspectives from history, anthropology and sociology. This will ensure that a range of ideas and interpretations will be provided, adding to the book’s distinctive value.
