Pressman Publishes Chapter on Arab Spring

Prof. Jeremy Pressman published “Same old story? Obama and the Arab Uprisings” in a new edited volume on the upheaval in the Arab World. The chapter appears in Mark Haas and David Lesch, eds., The Arab Spring: Change and Resistance in the Middle East (Boulder, CO: Westview Press, 2012). While President Obama’s policy contains many continuities with past U.S. policy, the Obama administration has been more reticent about military intervention (e.g. Syria) and more willing to talk with political leaders from Islamist parties (e.g. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood).
