While the Arab people took center stage in the 'Arab Spring' protests, academic studies focus on state structure, regime nature, militaries, and external powers to understand the limitations of popular uprisings in the Middle East. Contentious Politics in the Middle East redresses a gap in focus as it analyzes the complexities of popular agency through the framework of contentious politics theory, without neglecting the negotiations between the people and the structural factors highlighted above. The book's chapters apply familiar questions raised by theorists to the under-researched case-study of the Middle East after the uprisings: why do some contentious politics emerge into social movements, while some fragment or are repressed? How and why do contentious politics differ? How have social movements changed, or been changed by, the political contexts within which they operate? How does contentious politics theory help us understand recent events in the Middle East? What limitations of contentious politics theory have these events exposed? Edited by Fawaz A. Gerges and featuring insights from top scholars, this collection seeks to answer these important questions as it advances contentious politics theory.
