About this Item

Neuware - A Decade of Turmoil and Hope is the latest book by Wissam S. Yafi covering his native Lebanon and the Arab region. In this book, Yafi shares with his readers personal narrative from an expat's perspective, chronicling Lebanon's re-mergence after its civil war, its geopolitical victories, and its looming socio-economic crisis. His commentary then moves to the regional level with the United States' invasion of Iraq. Notwithstanding the Iraqi human tragedy, Yafi would become among the first to voice hope for regional change. This would soon be proven as Lebanon, emboldened by regional seismic shifts, saw its people demand freedom. And while it would come at a hefty cost, as Yafi argues, the Cedar Revolution would ultimately prove to be one of the primary pollinating factors for the Arab spring, giving hope to millions of people all over the region. 216 pp. Englisch.
