Summary Studies of the Arab revolutions and revolts of 2011 have stressed the power of popular mobilization, driven by social media and youth, and were hope‑-ful in regard to the emergence of democracy. Yet as these events have unfolded, a fragile and contested democracy has emerged only in Tunisia; elsewhere in the region, runaway militias are creating chaos in Libya, Egypt has returned to an authoritarian military regime, Yemen faces multiple rebellions, and Syria has become mired in a horrific civil war.
