The Arab Uprisings

The People Want the Fall of the Regime

About The Book

An updated edition.

Jeremy Bowen has been the BBC's Middle East correspondent for twelve years and has been on the ground for them as the recent revolutions have swept through the region.

Realising this as a game-changing moment in the history of the Middle East, The Arab Uprisingscaptures 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 will look at the world the demonstrators rejected and its Arab dictators. The author will examine brutal police states, tribal loyalty and foreign help. The West's response and Israel's too, will form part of the narrative.

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