Respected human rights activist Nonie Darwish assesses the potential for freedom to succeed following the recent revolutions in the Middle East.
The recent powerful wave of Middle East uprisings has fueled both hope and trepidation in the region and around the world as the ultimate fate - and fallout - of the Arab Spring continue to hang in the balance. Born and raised as a Muslim in Egypt and now living in the United States, Nonie Darwish brings an informed perspective to this carefully considered assessment of the potential outcome of the revolutions in the Middle East. This thought-provoking book will add to the ongoing debate on what the future holds for the people and the politics of the region and on the ultimate compatibility of freedom and democracy in the Muslim world.
- Takes an unflinching, in-depth look at the ramifications of the game-changing recent uprisings in the Middle East.
- Examines the factors that will obstruct or support freedom and democracy in the Muslim world.
- Written by a former journalist for the Middle East News Agency who has written extensively on the Middle East, Islam, and women's rights, and who is also the author of Cruel and Unusual Punishment: The Terrifying Implications of Islamic Law and Now They Call Me Infidel: Why I Renounced Jihad for America, Israel, and the War on Terror.

Good to Learn from Former Adherent
A thoroughly researched and straight-forward introduction for anyone who wants to advocate for truth and reason. Will not disappoint.
What disappointed you about The Devil We Don't Know?
There is no constructed reasoning in this book. From the verry begining it is made of an accumulation of unverrified "facts" and dogmas. The author is agressive and resentfull and expresses her own opinion without constructing her case. I'm verry disapointed by this book, it is a simplistic and narrow minded view of the arab world.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Gigi Falkland?
Yes, naration is not the issue here.
