One of the leading figures interpreting the Arab revolution on Al Jazeera was and continues to be Marwan Bishara, Al Jazeera's Senior Political Analyst. Bishara will discuss his new book, THE INVISIBLE ARAB: The Promise and Peril of the Arab Revolution. Hailed as a brilliant, lucid and provocative analysis of the dynamics of the Arab revolution, it is particularly relevant given today’s context, as the world returns its gaze to the Middle East and North Africa with the first anniversary of the Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions approaching—and as events in Syria, Yemen and Bahrain are still up in the air.
