Tunisia’s bid for democracy mushroomed into the “Arab Spring” across the Middle East.  Can the momentum generated by that inspiring display of people power lead to genuine democratic reform?  Over the long run, will those momentous events benefit American interests in the region--or not? And how best can constructive change be encouraged?
