Whither WANA?: Reflections on the Arab Uprisings challenges conventional narratives, eschewing the term ‘Middle East’ for the ideologically neutral WANA, or West Asia and North Africa—spanning from the Arab world to Iran and Turkey, becomes the canvas for a nuanced exploration of ongoing uprisings. Rejecting the simplistic label ‘Arab Spring,’ the book delves into the complex tapestry of protests, describing them as uprisings that echo historical struggles against injustice. The essays, categorized by country, unfold chronologically, offering a profound analysis of tumultuous events in Egypt, Iran, Libya, Syria, Tunisia, and Turkey. Beyond WANA, global players like the United States, Russia, and China contribute to this intricate geopolitical narrative. The book, marked by its ever-evolving perspective, provides reflections and insights on the third anniversary of the Arab uprisings. Whither WANA? invites readers to navigate a shifting landscape, pondering the trajectories of these uprisings and the future of the region.
