This book aims to present a compassionate analysis of the Arab popular uprisings in the twenty-first century with particular reference to two important cases, Egypt and Tunisia. The analysis of events is anchored in a structuralist political economy framework. Though it is not meant as a detailed historical account of the popular uprisings, an analytic perspective being the purpose and distinguishing feature of this monograph, care has been exercised to be historically accurate. Other historical narratives of Arab popular uprisings that are available may, in my opinion, lack this perspective. For example, in the case of Egypt, the interested reader may consult Hazem Kandil’s recent book (2014).
