Response paper assignment sheet

• Mark L. Haas & David W. Lesch. The Arab Spring: The Hope and Reality of the Uprisings. Second Edition. London: Routledge 2016. ISBN-13: 978-0813349749.

This assignment asks you to read the book listed above. The text deals with a contemporary issue in the Middle East and your goal will be to respond to some key ideas and themes in the text, and consider them in light of what we have discussed and read throughout the term thus far. Keep in mind that this is not a summary or book review – it is an analytical response paper, and the goal is to address specific themes of the text in light of your own understanding. This is not solely an opinion paper! I do want your personal responses to the text, and that means your thoughts, yes, but I want these to be expressed through well-reasoned arguments and supported with evidence from readings, lectures, and from the text under review, as appropriate. A paper that shows no citations to sources and does not support its arguments will not get you the best grade on the assignment. You have been warned... The closer you get to formatting suggested in the Chicago Manual Style, the happier I will be – with one exception (title pages are a waste of paper!). If you want to make me smile, take a glance at the citation guidelines you can find on-line, and at the brief summary of points that I included on the course syllabus. Your paper need not be overly long, but I leave that mostly to you. Let your argument determine length, not an arbitrary requirement. I want to see two things: that you have read this book, and that you can analyse the author’s arguments and connect them to this class. The paper is worth 20% of your grade and is due in class on the appropriate date listed on the syllabus (each of the five papers has a different due date).

Explanation & Answer

waiting for the book. Will submit today.



The Arab Spring is a term that is widely used to refer to the series of revolt and uprisings
that rose in the Arab world between 2010 and 2012. These uprisings mainly involved the
demonstration of civilians in oust the regimes in power out of the power and bring upon
democracy in most of these countries. Haas and Lesch, in the book “The Arab Spring: The Hope
and Reality of the Uprisings” compiled a succinct discussion of the uprisings from renowned
authors tackling the Spring from different perspectives and each handling an aspect of the
revolts. Various ideas including the cause and effects of the Arab Spring have been discussed,
and they raise fascinating analyses of the Arab Spring. The Arab Spring led to a change of
regimes in some of the countries most involved and led to a period of enlightenment for many
residents of the Middle Eastern nations.
The Arab Spring can be understood n and analyzed from three points of view. First, there
are the countries that saw the height of the uprisings and where the action went down. These
uprisings began with Tunisia and then went to Egypt, Libya, and finally Syria.1 This point of
view allows one to understand the causes of the uprisings, the results, and effects as one way of
preventing such revolts in the future or even ensuring that the desired results are achieved more
efficiently without the disruption of peace. The second point of view is through those countries
within the Middle East and having similar structures like the ones affected by the uprisings but
not affected themselves. In short, viewing the uprising from Jordan and Saudi Arabia’s direction

would allow one to understand what the regimes did differently and how comes the countries
were immune to the Spring which affected their neighbors.
Outside the Arab Spring, the international community was also involved in the issues of
it. According to Anderson, the Arab Spring was a common playground for several international
players who either supported the uprisings in most cases or opposed them in others.2 This
viewpoint allows one to understand the interests of these external players in the uprisings and
how they benefited or were affected by it. Therefore, the three points of view form a distinct
basis for understanding the Arab Spring from a multi-dimensional approach as opposed to an
immersed approach from either Tunisia or Egypt and any of the other countries where it all went
Uprisings in the Affected Countries
Several ideas have been floated regarding the causes and effects of the uprisings in
Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, and Syria. The factors that are perceived to have led to the Arab Spring in
these four countries had been in existent for a long...
