The New Middle East: Protest and Revolution in the Arab World edited by Fawaz Gerges

This is a collection of articles on the Middle East about the Arab Spring. It was published in 2014, but only covered events up to 2013 at the latest. Despite being quite recent, events have moved on. Not least in Egypt, Libya, Syria and Yemen. This doesn’t necessarily make it out of date, but interesting none the less.

Some of it I found quite detailed and technical, but some of it very relevant and accessible. In particular, the chapters on Israel, Turkey/Iran, the US and Europe.
