Barry Rubin, The Long War for Freedom: The Arab Struggle for Democracy in the Middle East. Can be ordered at: http://www.amazon.com/Long-War-Freedom-Struggle-emocracy/dp/0471739014
The fate of many a current crisis--and much of America’s and even the whole world’s future—depends on the struggle for power in the Arab world. In The Long War for Freedom: The Arab Struggle for Democracy in The Middle East Barry Rubin narrates the battle among reformers, regimes, and radical Islamists. He pays tribute to the liberals’ courage but also points to their weakness, lack of success, and the tremendous forces against them. Among the issues covered are the battles among Arabs to define Islam, America, Israel, the war in Iraq, women’s rights, and terrorism.
