Summary: "Protesters in the Middle East made history in 2011 when they toppled dictators who had been entrenched for decades...[this book] is a stirring, on-the-ground account of these protests, in the words of the people who made them happen...We hear from the Egyptian youth leaders who transformed Tahrir Square into a symbol of freedom; the Indignados who raged against austerity measures in Spain's already-dark times; and of the many Americans, from New York to Madison to Oakland, who marched under the banner 'We are the 99%'"--p.4 of cover.
