The Arab Spring: Delayed Defiance and the End of Postcolonialism

by Hamid Dabashi - £14.99  Zed Books Ltd (2012)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781780322230 | ISBN 10: 1780322232

This pioneering explanation of the Arab Spring will define a new era of thinking about the Middle East.
 
In this landmark book, Hamid Dabashi argues that the revolutionary uprisings that have engulfed multiple countries and political climes from Morocco to Iran and from Syria to Yemen, were driven by a 'Delayed Defiance' - a point of rebellion against domestic tyranny and globalized disempowerment alike - that signifies no less than the end of Postcolonialism. Sketching a new geography of liberation, Dabashi shows how the Arab Spring has altered the geopolitics of the region so radically that we must begin re-imagining the 'the Middle East'.
 
Ultimately, the 'permanent revolutionary mood' Dabashi brilliantly explains has the potential to liberate not only those societies already ignited, but many others through a universal geopolitics of hope.
