About this book

This book presents an in-depth exploration of the impact of the Arab Uprisings on the relationship between constructions of (in)security, narratives of threat and patterns of socio-political change within the Middle East and North Africa region. It also offers insights into the study of regional security and the operation of threat perceptions.

Reviews

"With 'blow back' from the 2011 Arab uprisings continuing, Dr Elizabeth Monier has identified authors with insightful knowledge of the developments, actors and trends involved. The result is a superb collection of chapters which will intrigue the serious student of Middle Eastern politics, while providing an invaluable contribution to any academic syllabus dealing with the changing security environment in a part of the world where the threat of Armageddon is recurrent.'' - Mark G. Hambley, former US Consul General in Alexandria and Jeddah and Ambassador to Qatar and Lebanon

''Regional Insecurity After the Arab Uprisings examines critical aspects of Middle Eastern security by broadening the analysis to include human security. A breath of fresh air in Security Studies, which is still dominated by a narrow focus on militarism, the volumem will expand the debate on the challenge of security in a new Middle East transformed by contentious politics and civil wars.'' Fawaz A. Gerges, Emirates Chair in Contemporary Middle Eastern Studies, London School of Economics, UK
