In 2011 thousands of Arab youth took to the streets revealing the genesis of a new generation sparked by the desire for civil liberties and participatory democracy. Arab Youthexplores the antecedents of the upheavals and anticipates alternative venues of resistance that marginalized youth--from Lebanon, Syria, and Palestine to Saudi Arabia, Morocco, and Iran--can mobilize to realize their emancipatory expectations. Samir Khalafis a professor of sociology at the American University of Beirut. He has held academic positions at Princeton, Harvard, MIT, and New York University. Roseanne Saad Khalafis associate professor of English and creative writing at the American University of Beirut.
