I Like Big Books and I Cannot Lie

Whether it’s little books with big ideas or big, heavy books that take weeks to get through, I love big books. Big, encapsulating, books with sentences that make me melt into a puddle on the floor and soar to the highest heights, all at the same time.

The Arab Uprisings

The uprisings in the Middle East seemingly exploded out of the blue in the winter of 2010. But it’s a phenomenon that has been simmering for decades; and is currently one of the most volatile and fluid situations that has stumped even the most seasoned analysts and "experts" in the field trying to make sense of the “Arab Spring”. This collection of books gives readers a thorough understanding of the current landscape of the Middle East and the ever changing dynamics of that region, as well as the socio-political history that brought it to this point.
