The Arab uprisings explained : new contentious politics in the Middle East by Marc Lynch( )

14 editions published in 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 1,226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why did Tunisian protests following the self-immolation of Mohammed Bouazizi lead to a massive wave of uprisings across the entire Arab world? Who participated in those protests, and what did they hope to achieve? Why did some leaders fall in the face of popular mobilization while others found ways to survive? And what have been the lasting results of the contentious politics of 2011 and 2012? The Arab uprisings pose stark challenges to the political science of the Middle East, which for decades had focused upon the resilience of entrenched authoritarianism, the relative weakness of civil

Will the Arab world's struggle for change succeed in building open societies, or will authoritarian regimes regain their grip?

The new Arab wars : uprisings and anarchy in the Middle East by Marc Lynch( Book )

16 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Less than twenty-four months after the hope-filled Arab uprising, the popular movement had morphed into a dystopia of resurgent dictators, failed states, and civil wars. Egypt's epochal transition to democracy ended in a violent military coup. Yemen and Libya collapsed into civil war, while Bahrain erupted in smothering sectarian repression. Syria proved the greatest victim of all, ripped apart by internationally fueled insurgencies and an externally supported, bloody-minded regime. Amidst the chaos, a virulently militant group declared an Islamic State, seizing vast territories and inspiring terrorism across the globe. What happened? The New Arab Wars is a profound illumination of the causes of this nightmare. It details the costs of the poor choices made by regional actors, delivers a scathing analysis of Western misreadings of the conflict, and condemns international interference that has stoked the violence. Informed by commentators and analysts from the Arab world, Marc Lynch's narrative of a vital region's collapse is both wildly dramatic and likely to prove definitive. Most important, he shows that the region's upheavals have only just begun--and that the hopes of Arab regimes and Western policy makers to retreat to old habits of authoritarian stability are doomed to fail"--Front flap

Blogs and bullets III : Syria's socially mediated civil war by Marc Lynch( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Syria has been the most socially mediated conflict in history. Compared with previous conflicts, an exceptional amount of what the outside world knows -- or thinks it knows -- about the nearly three-year-old conflict has come from videos, analysis, and commentary circulated through social networks. These materials have informed international relief efforts, assessments of the identity and character of the rebel fighting groups, and debates about international intervention. But how credible was such information? How was it produced? Why did some gain attention and other, equally intriguing, information fade into obscurity? How did such information actually flow through the rapidly changing online social media? This report combines a broad survey of pathbreaking work on social media in conflict zones with unique new research findings based on analysis of discussions of Syria on Twitter

Als scharfer Beobachter der Aufstände im Nahen Osten seit dem Arabischen Frühling wagt der renommierte Politikwissenschaftler Marc Lynch starke Thesen: Es gibt keinen Weg zurück zu den alten autokratischen Systemen.

Er zeigt warum manche Staaten in Anarchie versanken und wie Stellvertreterkriege die Arabische Halbinsel erschüttern. Es Ist eine dramatische Geschichte mit weitreichenden Folgen für Europa und die Welt. (Quelle:
Upheaval : U.S. policy toward Iran in a changing Middle East by Marc Lynch( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The wave of uprisings that have rocked the Arab world will have dramatic consequences for America's strategy toward Iran. Arguments rage over whether the upheavals have strengthened or weakened Iran, Tehran's role in sparking or exploiting the turbulence, how new regimes in key Arab states might interact with the Islamic Republic, and if the wave of protests might reach Iran itself. But for all of the uncertainty, one thing seems clear: the foundations of the Obama administration's Iran strategy are crumbling. This report lays out a U.S. strategy toward Iran that is a policy reset from the regional status quo."--Page 5
Rhetoric and reality : countering terrorism in the age of Obama by Marc Lynch( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

President Barack Obama took office determined to fight terrorist networks such as al Qaeda more effectively by moving away from the most visible symbols and rhetorical framework of former President George W. Bush's "Global War on Terror." The Obama administration seeks to rebuild relations with the Muslim mainstream, marginalize violent extremists and deprive them of popular support, strike hard at terrorist networks and their havens and undermine extremist narratives by restoring American adherence to the rule of law. It seeks to move away from the distorting lens of terrorism in its dealings with the Muslim communities of the world and to define the threat as violent extremism instead of radical Islam. Though there are significant differences between this strategy and that of the Bush administration in the first half decade after the 9/11 attacks, there is also substantial continuity with the policies and philosophies adopted by the Bush administration in its final two years. The Obama administration built on those efforts, taking advantage of the opportunities offered by a presidential transition and increasing efforts in a range of key areas: engagement, outreach and a rhetorical commitment to restoring the rule of law on the one hand, and on the other, escalated (though not publicly acknowledged) drone strikes and counterterrorism partnerships in the ungoverned spaces where al Qaeda and its affiliated movements thrived. While the administration's policy has taken on clearer contours over the last year and a half, it is still easier to say what it is not rather than what it is. President Obama has not yet articulated an effective strategy to the American public. The administration must fill this void. If the strategy cannot be better articulated and a new approach institutionalized in a durable and robust set of institutional commitments and legal authorities, then there is a real risk that it will collapse in the face of challenges or setbacks. Now is the time for the Obama administration to lay out a clearly articulated strategic vision
Pressure not war : a pragmatic and principled policy towards Syria by Marc Lynch( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If Syria is to have any chance of reaching political transition, the United States and the international community must respond to the increasing violence there through an enhanced diplomatic strategy rather than military intervention, argues Dr. Marc Lynch. Dr. Lynch argues that while the United States has a responsibility to respond to the growing violence in Syria, it should not respond with military force, which is unlikely to improve conditions in Syria and has the potential to make them far worse. U.S. policy should instead focus on engaging in a sustained and targeted campaign of pressure against the Asad regime with the end goal of bringing key components of the ruling coalition to the negotiating table to devise a post-Asad political path forward. Dr. Lynch recommends specific actions for policymakers grappling with the crisis

This house believes that Arab media needs no lessons in journalism from the West( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This episode of the Doha Debates is the motion 'This House believes that Arab media need no lessons in journalism from the West'. Speaking for the motion, Khaled Hroub, the host of a weekly program on Al-Jazeera TV, described Western media as no example for the Arab world. He accused them of being "sensational" focusing on sex, fashion and celebrities, as well as being racist towards non-Westerners. "The mainstream media in the West is in very bad shape because it aligns itself with the ugly western politics," he argued. Joining him to support the motion was Arab media expert, Marc Lynch. Mr. Lynch, who is also Associate Professor for Political Science at Williams College in the US, praised the merits of Arab media today, calling it "genuinely revolutionary". He argued that Arab media has a passion and a wider diversity of views that is quite superior to what is seen on American political talk shows. Against the motion and winners of the debate were Abdullah Schleifer and Mona Eltahawy. Mr. Schleifer, a veteran American journalist who covered the Middle East for more than two decades for NBC News, Jeune Afrique and The New York Times, and has recently been appointed Al Arabiya's Washington DC bureau chief. New York-based Mona Eltahawy writes a weekly column for Asharq al-Awsat newspaper and is a frequent contributor to opinion pages in the US and abroad. Mr. Schleifer pointed out that the best of Arab media today had learned their skills were from the West

The tourniquet : a strategy for defeating the Islamic State and saving Syria and Iraq by Marc Lynch( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Tourniquet, authored by Adjunct Senior Fellow Marc Lynch, lays out a strategy for internationally legitimate and regionally coordinated large-scale but conditional assistance to Iraq and to Syrians. For Syria, the report argues for a 'strategic pause' to allow the building of viable alternative governance in rebel-controlled parts of Syria, while rejecting the idea of partnering with the Asad regime against ISIS as both unrealistic and undesirable and acknowledging the constraints imposed by the absence of a viable Syrian opposition with which to work. For Iraq, it argues for close support conditioned upon a commitment by Iraqi leaders to implement long-needed political reforms and by Kurdish leaders to remain within the Iraqi state. Regionally, it shows the importance of pulling back from debilitating proxy wars and warns against subordinating human rights and political reforms to the exigencies of a new war on terror"--Publisher's web site
