Undoubtedly the developments in Arabian countries are one of the most important and influential developments that have occurred in the Middle East over the past decades. Of course there are widespread differences of opinions in regard of the nature, content and even the title or name of these developments. As a matter of fact some consider it as Arab Spring, Arab developments and others consider it Arab revolution or Islamic Awakening which all shows differences of attitudes regarding the nature of these unprecedented developments that have engulfed the Middle East region in recent years and are yet continuing. While these developments have great importance there are vast ambiguities about the origin, nature and future of these developments. Experts, scholars and academic circles as well as different countries have different attitudes and viewpoints about these developments in the Arab world. Various books have been written in recent years in order to explain and clarify these ambiguities and present a deeper and precise understanding of what is happening in the Arab world. Most of these books reflect different viewpoints. For example one can refer to the present book which has been authored by the initiative of “Fawaz Gerges”, the political science lecturer of London University who is considered as one of the most distinguished and prominent authorities on the Middle East region.

For this reason academic circles have admired and welcomed the book and several critics have written reviews about it. The book consists of one introduction and four chapters which here in are discussed and reviewed.
