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

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."

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.

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.
