About The Book

Former BBC Middle East correspondent, Jeremy Bowen was on the ground for them as revolutions swept through the region.

Realising this as a game-changing moment in the history of the Middle East, The Arab Uprisings captures the thoughts and feelings of the people involved as the events unfolded, putting these revolutions in their political context, and using them as a prism through which to understand the broader history and landscape of the Middle East.

The book looks at the world the demonstrators rejected and its Arab dictators. The author examines brutal police states, tribal loyalty and foreign help. The West's response and Israel's too, forms part of the narrative.

This is an urgent and authoritative account of the seismic political changes that rocked the Middle East, from one of the foremost reporters of our time.
