A Movement that Mattered

Despite the tragedies that followed it, the Arab Spring provided lessons and hope for a better future, Noah Feldman argues in a new book

In “The Arab Winter: A Tragedy,” Feldman writes: “People whose political lives had been determined and shaped from the outside tried politics for themselves, and for a time succeeded. That this did not lead to constitutional democracy or even to a more decent life for most of those affected is not a reason to believe that the effort was meaningless.”
