The Lantern
Political Philosophy and The Arab Spring
by Ayman Aborabh

A striking new book about Western Philosophy and the Arab Spring that dares to ask readers, if you don’t understand the essential tenets of freedom and democracy, what are you fighting for?

The Lantern is a political and philosophical think piece, exploring the complex issues that have prevented real change in current Arabian states. The author opens groundbreaking new thinking by challenging readers to embrace western philosophy and adapt them to the current realities and politics in the Arab world.

With candor and a good dose of humour, the author illuminates his arguments by examining Hobbes, Plato, Burke, Machiavelli, and how they would examine the current political scene inside Arabian states. The Lantern also features two “ordinary” Arabian citizens arguing the essential questions about freedom, democracy and their own realities. Written in a hip and in-the-moment style, the book is an ideal University course book or Independent bookshop and library buy.

The author also regularly posts videos to his popular YouTube ( where he discusses these compelling topics. The Lantern shines a fresh new light on Arab politics in a gripping new book about knowledge, aspiration that readers will instantly understand and connect with.
