Overview:

Arab Spring Dreams : <p>From a gay man secretly mourning his lover's suicide in Morocco to a young woman denied schooling because of religious discrimination in Iran, <i>Arab Spring Dreams</i> spotlights some of the Middle East's most outspoken young dissidents. The essayists cover a wide range of experiences, including premarital sex, the lack of educational opportunities, teenage marriage, and the fight for political freedom. They also highlight how repressive laws and cultural mores snuff out liberty and stifle growth and consider how previous movements - particularly the American civil rights struggle - might be channeled to effect change in their own countries.Beautifully written and profoundly moving, these stories present a decisive call for change at a crucial point in the evolution of the Middle East.</p>
