Timely and provocative, Generation Freedom looks at
the historic youth uprisings sweeping the Middle East and
what they mean for the future of peace, coexistence, and
relations with the West.
At a time when the world is
asking how the Arab Spring and the death of Osama bin Laden
will reshape our times, Bruce Feiler, bestselling author of
Walking the Bible and Abraham, offers a vivid
behind-the-scenes portrait of history in the making. He
marches with the daring young organizers in Liberation
Square, confronts the head of the Muslim Brotherhood, and
witnesses the dramatic rebuilding of a church at exactly the
moment sectarian violence threatens the peaceful movement.
Drawing on fifteen years of travels across the region, from
Egypt to Israel, Iraq to Iran, Feiler brings his
unprecedented experience to the most pressing questions: how
the rise of freedom will affect terrorism; Middle East
peace; and relations among Jews, Christians, and Muslims
worldwide. Eloquent and thoughtful, Generation
Freedom offers a hopeful vision of how this unrivaled
upheaval will transform the world.
