Providing the most up-to-date introduction to Tunisia’s post-independence and post-Arab Spring politics, concisely written chapters cover topics such as:
the Arab Spring; its factors and repercussions
Key to this new edition is the examination of Tunisian history, politics and society alongside the subsequent upheaval following the outbreak of revolts in December 2010. It looks at how political and economic changes after 2001, including economic deterioration and rising inequality and corruption, had already begun to erode bases of Ben Ali’s government, and explores why Tunisia is the sole Arab Spring country to construct a democracy thus far, and the challenges that this new democracy still faces.
An essential inclusion on courses on Middle Eastern politics, African politics, and political science in general, this accessible introduction to Tunisia will also be of interest to anyone wishing to learn more about this significant region.
me… blame that in which you’ve allowed to be created around you. I am just a reflection.”
What started off as “just another poetry book” ended up becoming much,
much more. Christopher Alexander Berg’s latest work, White Slavery, is a creation that comes along maybe once every
generation. The words in this book surpass art, emotion and even wisdom. When
describing this book, all one can say is… blessing. This work, this writer and
his sacrifice have made this book a true blessing for us all. Inspired by the
cries of a nation from the mouths of the voiceless… Berg has put together
what’s sure to be an instant classic.
“I didn’t want to write just another poetry book. I wanted to do more and
show more with the words this time. I experimented with different types of
writing styles and formats in order to push myself to the next level. We are
living in dangerous times and in order to reach as many people as I could, I
knew I had to expand and not just write for those who are awake… but for those
who are asleep as well.”
Slavery punches holes into modern
man’s way of thinking and exposes the lies we’ve all been forced to believe. If
the truth does indeed hurt… then get ready to have your heart broken and your
mind blown away. Welcome to the way things are. Welcome to your chains.
Well, without any hesitation, YES "XXX" is a work of absolute genius. The words are powerful, magnetic and very well placed. Each poem has a life of its own, making this a very hard book to put down. Each sentence is systematically crafted to run circles around your brain.
"XXX" will leave your mind in a hundred different places all at the same time. You will be speechless, shocked, breathless and even in fear once your eyes run across some of the things written in this book.
This is a true eye opener that really leaves one to wonder if a human being actually even wrote this. In "Psalms of the Pharaoh," Berg gave you a piece of his heart. In "XXX," Berg gives you a piece of everything
It's dark, extreme and beyond anything you have ever seen. All in all this book can be summed up in one word... outstanding
About the Author
Christopher Alexander Berg began writing in his early teens, mainly as a form of self therapy. Through time, his writing became much more than a psychiatric reflection of one's self, and more of a life support system whenever he felt suicidal. Trading blood for ink, his war began... a personal war that targeted the world and everybody in it. It has been said that Berg "bleeds through his pen," but let's not forget how much he writes from his heart. Sometimes prophetic, sometimes sadistic... Berg indeed proves there's a fine line between genius and insanity... but where Berg is on this line, no one really knows.
