This lecture will examine the underpinnings of the revolutionary process ignited in North Africa and the Middle East in December 2010, in order to assess its potential future course. It will critically discuss various explanations of the Arab uprising that attribute it to political causes, the economic conjuncture, or economic policies. The lecture will relate the Arab uprising to structural social features that have been blocking development for decades in the region. It will then assess what can be inferred from the identification of these factors with regard to the dynamics and future of the ongoing process.

His recent books include The Clash of Barbarisms: The Making of the New World Disorder (2002, 2nd ed. 2006, translated into thirteen languages); Perilous Power: The Middle East and U.S. Foreign Policy, co-authored with Noam Chomsky (2006, 2nd ed. 2007); and the critically acclaimed The Arabs and the Holocaust: The Arab-Israeli War of Narratives (2010).
