Professor Gilbert Achcar is one of the world’s leading experts on conflict in the Middle East.

There has been little journalistic coverage of the economic and secular political issues that are the fundamental cause of a great deal of Middle Eastern violence.  He has written eleven books and over a hundred articles on the Middle East. His book The People Want (University of California Press) is an important reinterpretation of the events of Arab Spring that goes beyond the standard clichés to link popular protest to frustrating political blocks on normal processes of economic development.  RSVP to copp@utsa.edu or call (210) 458-3213.
