The Long War for Freedom: The Arab Struggle for Democracy in the Middle East
Praise for The Long War for Freedom
"An extremely important book. The Long War for Freedom finally presents to the Western world an in-depth portrait of those 'small voices' in the Arab world waging the most critical battle of the twenty-first century--the battle for the soul of the Middle East. No one with any interest in the struggle for economic and political reform in the Arab world can afford to neglect this penetrating and provocative work, which lays bare both the importance and the great difficulty of helping the Arab world to transform itself."
--Kenneth Pollack, author of The Threatening Storm and The Persian Puzzle
