Summary:
"This book is about navigating the multiplicity of spaces that open following regime change and the numerous battles that ensue as actors at both social and political levels swiftly move to define a country's national identity and set its highest priorities. As the uprisings across the Middle East and North Africa unfolded in 2010 and 2011, this book originated with a question: what and who constitutes civil society in the region? And what does this mean both for the potential 'success' and 'failure' of nascent movements toward greater plurality and democratization?"-- Provided by publisher.
