This review is from: The Arab Uprisings: The People Want the Fall of the Regime (Kindle Edition)
Jeremy Bowen's extensive experience in and around the Middle East and his balanced reporting come together into this excellent book. Without saying it in words of one syllable, he predicts where the Middle East is likely to go next and where that leaves the local players and the world powers. It doesn't look hopeful.
Having spent 4 months in Damascus, I recognise all he says as correct. Also, as he is not a man who can be tricked by 'minders' from and faction, regime or country (or religion), you get the inside view. Fascinating. And all in a very readable and modest style.
