Summary
  • "A closely-reported work of literary journalism on the Arab Spring and its troubled aftermath"--
  • In 2011 a wave of revolution spread from Egypt to Yemen as protesters demanded an end to tyranny, corruption, and economic decay. Five years later, their utopian aspirations have taken on a darker cast as old divides reemerge and deepen; brutal terrorists and dictators have risen to the top. Worth tracks the tormented legacy of what was once called the Arab Spring, and explains how the dream of an Arab renaissance gave way to a new age of discord
