Summary
"The Arab Spring captivated the planet. Mass action overthrew Tunisia's Ben Ali and Egypt's Hosni Mubarak. The revolutionary wave spread to the far corners of the Arab world, from Morocco to Bahrain. It semed as if all the authoritarian states would finally be freed, even those of the Arabian Peninsual. People's power had produced this wave, and continuted to ride it out. In Libya, though, the new world order had different ideas. Social forces opposed to Muammar Qaddafi had begun to rebel, but they were weak. In came France and the United States, with promises of glory. A deal followered with the Saudis, who then sent in their own forces to cut down the Bahraini revolution, and NATO began its assault, ushering in a Libyan Winter that cast its shadow over the Arab Spring. This brief, timely analysis situatioes the assault on Libya in the context of the winds of revolution that swept through the Middle East in the Spring of 2011. Vijay Prashad lays bare the history of the Qaddafi regime, the social forces who aopposed him, and the role fo the United Nations, NATO and the rest of the world's superpowers in teh bloody civil war that ensued" -- Publisher's description, p. [4] of cover
