I thought you might like to know that an extraordinary compendium of articles on the Arab uprisings -- more than 20 altogether -- specially commissioned by the Palestine-Israel Journal, has just been published in its latest volume under the rubric 'Arab Spring'. The Israeli, Palestinian and international authors -- comprising public figures, prominent academics and veteran writers -- examine from diverse viewpoints just about every aspect of the recent turmoil in the Arab world, its causes, significance and future implications, including the place and role of Israel in the emerging regional order.
And here is the letter from the editors:
Most of the articles are available online at http://www.pij.org/current.php
. My contribution, 'Have the Arab Uprisings lost their Spring?', may be accessed direct at http://www.pij.org/details. php?id=1409. Over the next few days I plan to read every single article. I am sure it will be fascinating. You are welcome to join me!
