Book abstract: This volume evaluates the various drivers and outcomes of the Arab revolutions, all of which continue to bear an ever-greater influence on the formulation of American strategy in the Middle East. The authors examine the critical period of transition in Egypt, escalating violence and options of intervention in Syria, and the threats associated with a nuclear Iran. They also analyze U.S. efforts in balancing an effective strategy of immediate economic assistance and long-term investment in the region, reviewing the Obama administration’s successes and failures during the overall process of Arab democratization.
