Understanding the Arab uprisings one year on

I strongly, strongly recommend Volker Perthes’ very clear analysis posted at Open Democracy for anyone interested in understanding the broad dynamics of what is going on in the region, both within and between states.

This is great writing: it is clear, and it says as much as it needs to say and no more. Stop reading this; go read that.

    I have started to read your blog. I have little point of reference to connect with your experience, and I am wanting to learn. You and your family are in my prayers. I visited with Francesca tonight and will look for other ways to offer support. Be well and safe. God bless you and keep you. Ruth Kovacs
