Abstract:

The popular uprisings of the Arab Spring that spread across the Middle East in early 2011 have left a leadership void that Islamist parties have been quick to fill. A longtime supporter of former autocrats like Tunisia's Zine El-Abidine Ben Ali and Egypt's Hosni Mubarak, the United States now faces the uncomfortable result of Arab democracy-the rise of Islamist parties that are less amenable to the West than their dictatorial predecessors. Will the Islamists, who once embraced violence, slowly liberalize as they face the difficulties of governing? Or will they promote the spread of anti-Americanism and radicalization in the region?
