Yesterday on the Al Jazeera website, Larbi Sadiki, author of The Search for Arab Democracy: Discourses and Counter-Discourses, wrote an op-ed that considers the potential successors to Mubarak in Egypt. Her article is just one of many by Columbia University Press authors that have analyzed recent events in Egypt. Here is a partial list of other recent essays and op-eds:
Marc Lynch’s blog on the Foreign Policy website has had a series of posts on the situation in Egypt and Obama’s reaction. Lynch’s twitter feed @abuaardvark is also an excellent way to stay on top of events. (Lynch is the author of Voices of the New Arab Public: Iraq, al-Jazeera, and Middle East Politics Today)
Chistopher Davidson, who has written on Dubai and Abu Dhabi, contributed to Current Intelligence with a piece on how events in Egypt will affect the Gulf States. His twitter page @dr_davidson is also a great resource for news about the Arab world.
Mohammad Salama, co-editor of the forthcoming German Colonialism: Race, the Holocaust, and Postwar Germany, wrote a piece for Antiwar.com on the history of Mubarak’s rule and what it means for Egypt and the Arab world that it is now coming to an end.
In Current Intelligence, Alex Strick van Linschoten, co-editor and co-translator of My Life with the Tailban, links the situation in U.S. and Afghanistan and the United States’ resistance to bold political action.
Carrie Wickham, author of Mobilizing Islam: Religion, Activism and Political Change in Egypt asks Where does Muslim Brotherhood fit in Egypt’s moment?
