In A Rage for Order, contributing New York Times Magazine writer Robert F. Worth brings the history of the present to life through vivid stories and portraits of people involved in the Arab Spring, among them a Libyan rebel who must decide whether to kill the Qaddafi-regime torturer who murdered his brother; a Yemeni farmer who lives in servitude to a dungeon-operating, poetry-writing chieftain; and an Egyptian doctor who is caught between his loyalty to the Muslim Brotherhood and his hopes for a new, tolerant democracy. A Rage for Order combines dramatic storytelling with an original analysis of Arab world today, capturing its psychic tensions and civil unrest. This lecture was generously supported by Daimler-Fonds.
