Robin Wright on 'Rock the Casbah'

Thursday, August 25, 2011

Historically speaking, when we think of revolutions we think of youth. And in the case of the Arab spring, this is certainly true — one half of the Islamic world is people under thirty, and they are at the forefront of sweeping change. How are their values and religious beliefs similar to (and different from) their elders?

Robin Wright joins us. Wright is a journalist who has reported on the Middle East for major newspapers since 1973. Her book "Rock the Casbah: Rage and Rebellion Across the Islamic World," examines youth and revolt in the Muslim world.
