    • The Fires of Spring A Post Arab Spring Journey Through the Turbulent New Middle East Turkey Iraq Qatar Jordan Egypt and Tunisia
    Product Description:

    Turkey, Iraq, Qatar, Jordan, Egypt, and Tunisia

    The “Arab Spring” all started when a young Tunisian fruit seller set himself on fire in protest of a government official confiscating his apples and slapping his face. The aftermath of that one personal protest grew to become the Middle East movement known as the Arab Spring―a wave of disparate events that included protests, revolutions, hopeful reform movements, and bloody civil wars.

    The Fires of Spring is the first book to bring the post?Arab Spring world to light in a holistic context. A narrative of author Shelly Culbertson’s journey through six countries of the Middle East, The Fires of Spring tells the story by weaving together a sense of place, insight about issues of our time, interviews with leaders, history, and personal stories. Culbertson navigates the nuances of street life and peers into ministries, mosques, and women’s worlds. She delves into what Arab Spring optimism was about, and at the same time sheds light on the pain and dysfunction that continues to plague parts of the region. The Fires of Spring blends reportage, travel memoir, and analysis in this complex and multifaceted portrait.
