Ramadan's assertion that "The job of civil society is to launch genuine debate on political, economic and cultural emancipation. The endless controversies between 'secularists' and 'Islamists'... can offer no solution to today's problems" will not be popular with those who want to maintain a polarised view. However, I find his approach refreshing and challenging; particularly his belief that "Societies need not only political uprisings; they need an intellectual revolution that will open the door to economic change, spiritual, religious, cultural and artistic liberation - and to the empowerment of women."

The Arab spring was a key moment in recent history. In typical Tariq Ramadan style it is well researched, argued and balanced. Highly recommended.

Writing a book on unfolding events is always risky because evidence will be fragmentary and conclusions will be speculative at best. Ramadam acknowledges this, but feels that the events of 2011 and 2012 are so remarkable that even a tentative explanation is bound to be helpful to some people. It was very helpful to me. I learned a great deal from this easily digestible yet sophisticated book, which is, in part, a series of insightful journalistic essays written throughout the Arab Spring. I recommend this very highly.

I think it is factually extremely intensive and accurate. I admired the clear thinking of Prof. Tariq Ramadan, and in the manner he has put forward it to his readers. I liked his method of putting the arguments clearly and his style of writing.

1.0 out of 5 stars The usual Islamic Arab gibreish 9 Mar. 2013
By Jamil Baroody - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Tariq Ramadan is the grandson of Hassan Al Bana the founder of Christian hating Muslim Brotherhood in Egybt and the son of Said Ramadan the founder of terrorist loving Balistinian Branch of the Muslim Brotherhood. Like a tybical IslamoNazi he has a catch-all consbiracy theory embloyed whenever he has difficulty exblaining the sorry state of affairs in his Jihadi world: the Zionists must have been bulling the strings. As such his boints of view are seen from an anti Western Imberialism and anti Zionism angle which makes this whole "intellectual" exercise worthless. On the other hand he has no broblem with the Arab Islamic Imberialism that subjugates formerly highly civilized Infidel lands from the Atlantic Ocean to the Bacific and from the Ural Mountains to the Horn of Africa. All these lands including the cradle of civilization of Sumeria are now combletely devastated due to the Islamic occubbation. The the biggest failure of Tariq Ramadan's "Arab Awakening" is the failure to deal with the real cause of the Arab Islamic world's condition which is obviously Islam. Thus nothing will change as long as this scourge is not dealt with in an honest way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 12 Sept. 2012
By Virginia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The books provides good reasoning ... and a more logical and un-biased way in looking at the "arab spring" ... it's thought provoking and intense
