From Cairo to Damascus and from Tunisia to Bahrain, Layla Al-Zubaidi and Matthew Cassel have brought together some of the most exciting new writing born out of revolution in the Arab world. This is a remarkable collection of testimony, entirely composed by participants in, and witnesses to, the profound changes shaking their region. Situated between past, present and future - in a space where the personal and the political collide - these voices are part of an ongoing process, one that is at once hopeful and heartbreaking. Unique amongst material emanating from and about the convulsions in the Arab Middle East, these creative and original writers speak of history, determination and struggle, as well as of political and poetic engagement with questions of identity and activism. This book gives a moving and inspiring insight into the Arab revolutions and uprisings: why they are happening and what might come next.

Review:

These accounts...[offer] examples of heroism and of hope for the future.' Samar Yazbek, author of A Woman in the Crossfire, from the Introduction to this book. 'If you want to understand the extraordinary happenings in the Middle East through the eyes of those who have lived through them you must read this book. These stories of horror and bravery read like testimonies to history as it was made.' Saira Shah, producer and writer of Death in Gaza 'For those dispirited by the lack of political and economic progress in the so-called Arab Spring countries, this amazing book reminds us that revolutions are at heart cultural. There is no better way to get a feel for the power of the Arab uprisings than to read this book.' Mark LeVine, Professor of History, UC Irvine
