Great Books for Summer Reading: 2013

Many of you (our valued readers) expressed appreciation for our “Great Books for Summer Reading” feature in 2012, so it is back by popular demand. Our goal is to give readers a healthy selection of interesting books for their summer reading lists.  We invited contributors to choose a social movements/protest-related book of the past couple years—whether scholarly or practical, “fact” or fiction, mainstream or not-so-mainstream—and  write a short review.  Many thanks to our great reviewers:

Strangers at the Gates (review)

Mustafa Gurbuz, University of South Florida
Islam and the Arab Awakening (review)

Efe Can Gürcan and Gerardo Otero, Simon Fraser University
