About the Book

In the aftermath of the Arab uprisings, there have been constant attempts at rethinking or reimagining the region. However, this is not the first time that a re-envisaging of West Asia or the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is taking place. The construction and deconstruction of the region has been a recurrent feature and the region as a concept is a comparatively modern as well as an unsteady construction. The Arab uprisings (2010) inducted a period of contentious politics, which has restructured the landscape of regional politics and defied the presumptions and conjectures that have dominated the literature on the comparative politics of the Middle East.

The passion in the early months of 2011 has long since given way to an extended, tenacious political tussle. It is far too soon to propose any decisive deductions about the eventual results of the Arab uprisings. The revolutionary moment continues to unravel. While there are reservations about the likelihood of the evolution of a truly revolutionary notion of freedom as one explores the threats and opportunities in an ever-changing political landscape, nevertheless the Arab uprisings of 2010 have set forth a plethora of queries pertaining to the region and beyond. The chapters in this volume explore the multiple and multi-layered dimensionsand potentialramifications of the uprisings, which took the world by surprise.
