ISIS ᚇ Author Robert F Worth ᛔ This is not simply the best book on the Arab spring, it is the best book on the Arab world today It is also the best book of foreign reporting I have read in a long time Deeply intelligent and beautifully written Fareed Zakaria, CNN Read Worths remarkable new book, A Rage for Order, and weep The book is a beautifully written chronicle, told through the struggles of ordinary people, of shattered hopes, lives, families and societies Worth does not judge He reveals Roger Cohen, The New York Times This is the book on the Middle East you have been waiting to read it tells the story of the 2011 Arab Spring and its slide into autocracy and civil war better than I ever could have imagined its being told The volume is remarkably slender for one of such drama and scopebeautifully written, Worths words scudding easily and gracefully across the pages It is also a marvel of storytelling, with the chapters conjuring a poignancy fitting for the subject All great works of fiction are works of great philosophy, pondering the fundamentals of humanity Few volumes of nonfiction ever achieve this, but Worths does, touching essential truths about the human condition Kenneth M Pollack, The New York Times Book Review An excellent book One of the many strengths of Mr Worth s book is his gift for finding and telling the small story that illuminates the big picture Mr Worth has the good judgment to focus on some first class stories pursued over the course of his extraordinary travels It is our additional good fortune that he writes about it so well Bartle Bull, The Wall Street Journal Subtly insightful Gerard Russell, The New York Review of Books A finely detailed book A Rage for Order offers vital lessons to help us understand a region whose conflicts rage on Melissa Block, special correspondent, NPR NewsThis is not your typical Middle East manuscript It s a beautifully written, moving account that brings humanity and heart to a region typically only considered in terms of conflict and chaos Bryan Schatz, Mother JonesThe best way to make sense of the past six years is to ask the Arab people what happened Robert Worth has done just that Mr Worth narrows the field of view, using personal narratives to illuminate the larger dynamics This is a common technique, but Mr Worth does it better than most he weaves together his stories with subtlety The EconomistA masterful account of humiliation and despair A Rage for Order brings the broad disappointments of the Arab Spring to the human level showing how events unfolded at the scale of individual lives This is an important service, since when we talk about the Middle East, we tend to use large religious and ideological abstractionsSunnis and Shiites, secularists and Islamists Worth brings those words back to their roots in the lives of real people, showing how people who never dreamed of making war or revolution ended up being unmade by them Adam Kirsch, TabletStriking Worth isn t so much writing a recent political history of an incredibly tumultuous time as he is telling the intimate stories of a dozen or so mostly ordinary people who were picked up, dragged along, and battered by events as if by bad weather, desperate for some traction todetermine their own fate Worth holds to his skepticism, but he leaves his readers with a glimmer of chance and change Kaelen Wilson Goldie, BookforumExtraordinary Worth is a wonderful writer he brings a sense of tendernesstinged with melancholy and regretto his entire narrative, which seems intent upon resisting despair even when it is reflected back to him over and over again a spectacular work of literary journalism Elaine Margolin, The Jerusalem Post This is the book you have to read on the Middle Eastnot just to understand the Arab revolutions, but to feel them as human drama and tragedy Robert Worth is a master who writes journalism as literature and history George Packer, author of The Assassins Gate and The UnwindingIt would be hard to find a astute and eloquent guide to this explosive corner of the Earth than Robert F Worth He somehow managed to be on hand for a score of crucial moments in the Arab worlds great convulsions, from the vast demonstrations of Tahrir Square to a just liberated Libyan prison to the crushing of great hopes in the years that followed Whatever lies ahead, I suspect that, as with John Reeds reporting on the Russian Revolution, people will be reading this vivid eyewitness account for years to come Adam Hochschild, author of To End All WarsRiveting, vivid, lucid, and wise, Robert F Worths A Rage for Order is reportage of the highest order it illuminates current Middle Eastern crises through the daily experiences of ordinary, and extraordinary, men and women Ive read no finer or nuanced account Claire Messud, author of The Woman UpstairsAs the Beirut bureau chief for The New York Times, Worth has seen a lot, and he writes compellingly about the dashed hopes and personal tragedies that followed the 2011 uprisings in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and Yemen Foreign AffairsWorth draws on his intimate knowledge of the Middle East to offer a penetrating, unsettling analysis Informing the vivid narrative are many revealing interviews as well as the author s own eyewitness accounts of events A crucial portrait of a deeply troubled region Kirkus Reviews starred review Veteran correspondent Worth traces the Arab Spring through five countries, from the heady idealism of 2011 to the largely grim aftermath Significantly, he does so through the stories of individuals rather than groups or sects, challenging simplistic, monolithic conceptions of rival factions Worth provides no easy path forward Instead, he skillfully presents the competing perspectives in play to explain the daunting impediments to stable states in the present day Middle East Publishers Weekly starred review Worth utilizes his long experience in the Middle East to provide a riveting survey of the origins, course of events, and causes of the dashing of so many of the dreams fueling the uprisings He concentrates on Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen, and Tunisia, and he effectively combines his personal observations with the experience of participants The result is an informative, if often heartrending, account of events whose consequences are still unfolding BooklistThe Arab world is in the grip of unprecedented crisis Popular uprisings have weakened not just authoritarian rulers but the regions very foundations of security and stability In his gripping account Robert Worth narrates the reversal in the Arab Worlds fortunes First hand accounts, brimming with detail, unveil why the region rose up against dictatorship and then why it was not able to sustain democracy Well written and informative, A Rage for Order is an eye opening read for policy makers and anyone else interested in understanding the raging crisis in the Middle East Vali Nasr, author The Dispensable Nation and The Shia RevivalRobert Worths A Rage for Order is a deeply informed and moving account of the politics of the Arab world during, and since, the Arab Spring uprisings of 2010 It is beautifully written and describes the tragedies and aspirations of the Arabs struggling under the yoke of authoritarian oppression and corrosive venality Drawing on a deep understanding of language, culture and history, Worth provides a series of finely delineated portraits, bringing to life the struggles of individual men and women in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Syria, and Yemen There is simply no better account of the recent events that have convulsed the countries of North African and the Middle East Bernard A Haykel, Professor of Near Eastern Studies and Director of the Institute for Transregional Study of the Contemporary Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia at Princeton University A Rage for Order is an outstanding book that captures the high hopes and deep despair of average Arabs who lived through the revolutions of 2011 in Egypt, Libya, Syria and Yemenand their tragic aftermath This is a brilliant contemporary history by one of The United States most distinguished Mideast correspondents, and a compellingly readable account Eugene Rogan, author of The Arabs and The Fall of the OttomansRobert F Worth spent fourteen years as a correspondent for The
