Riots And Revolutions: My Arab Journey
Postwar China premier Zhou Enlai's – possibly apocryphal – assessment of the effects of the French revolution ("It's too soon to say") seems exponentially more applicable to the upheavals that began roughly this time last year in the Middle East. Nevertheless, Nel Hedayat has a go. In the first of a two-part survey of the Arab spring, she visits Bahrain and Egypt. In the former, she meets the people maintaining their struggle for democracy, and in the latter, young women celebrating the overthrow of the tyranny that oppressed them and, er, advocating the imposition of Sharia law.
