This introductory course surveys recent revolutionary movements sweeping across the Islamic World, from North Africa, the Middle East into Asia, including the "Arab Spring."  Key course questions include:  Why rebel? Why now?  What for?  How?  Are they spreading, failing, or being 'hijacked?' What roles have external actors played?  What would Jefferson think?
