Críticas:


"It takes patience, clarity and perspective to explain the whole grim picture [in the Middle East] and the links between its constituent parts. These qualities are on impressive display in an important new book by the French scholar Jean-Pierre Filiu. His particular skill is to describe the development, survival and resurgence of the Arab 'deep state', the security agencies that have kept it going and the 'monster they helped create' - in its most extreme form the jihadis of the Islamic state (Isis). ... The answer, Filiu concludes bravely, has to be more democracy, not less, not a fatalistic acceptance that change can never come to the Middle East." -- The Guardian


"Among authors trying to make sense of why the uprisings of 2011 largely failed, Jean-Pierre Filiu stands out. His new book "From Deep State to Islamic State: The Arab Counter-Revolution and its Jihadi Legacy," combines passion, scholarship, and insight to present a convincing explanation of the deep malaise afflicting the Arab world." -- The Economist


"Filiu ... argues ... that the Arab revolutions (as he calls them) have been foiled - Tunisia apart - by successful counter-revolutions organised by the 'deep state'. In Syria - as in Egypt and Yemen - the deep state is the hard core of a regime that strongly resembles those of the Mamluks in Egypt and the Levant long ago. He holds the Syrian 'Mamluks' responsible not only for the devastation of their own country but also for the rise of Islamic State. ... In [this] polemical book ... Filiu offers the radical view that the 'Mamluks' were crude usurpers of the original national revolution, which they hijacked at independence; he insists that this was the case in Algeria before broadening the charge to apply it to Egypt, Syria and Yemen." -- London Review of Books


"Filiu has produced a refreshingly nuanced analysis of the region's totalitarian regimes, distinguishing between those of his "Modern Mamluks" (in Syria, Egypt, Yemen and Algeria) and other styles of suppressive dictatorships (in Iraq, Libya, Tunisia and the Gulf States)." -- The Times Literary Supplement


"[T]his highly topical and ambitious work ... looks to chart how the Arab Revolutions ... have been crushed by a combination of authoritarian regimes and jihadis. It is a 'study of the repressive dynamics designed to crush any hope of democratic change' (x) that looks to use a parallel with the Mamluks, who ruled Egypt from 1250 to 1517, to understand how a military elite in particular were able to 'hijack the post-colonial independent states and establish their military dictatorships' (p.125). Filiu combines the Mamluk history with a broad look across the Middle East and North Africa with a focus on Algeria, Yemen, Egypt, Syria and Tunisia ... The hijacking of independence movements is a rip-roaring tale of purges, coups, exiles, state of emergencies and the ubiquitous 'Communique Number Ones.'" -- Huffington Post


"An authoritative and revealing tour of the role of 'Arab security mafias' in shaping the politics of the Middle East. Filiu's account of the failure of the Arab uprisings places the blame for the region's chaos where it belongs: the reconstituted deep states, security agencies and autocratic leaders determined to hold on to power at any cost." -- Marc Lynch, Director of the Institute for Middle East Studies at George Washington University


"With magisterial knowledge of the Middle East, this sweeping narrative convincingly links the two most tragic events of our time: the failure of the Arab revolts and the proliferation of Islamist militancy. The result is a fast-paced, sombre, and ultimately devastating account." -- Hazem Kandil, University of Cambridge, author of Inside the Brotherhood


"Filiu has attempted to connect the past to the present in this highly topical and ambitious work that looks to chart how the Arab revolutions...have been crushed by a combination of authoritarian regimes and jihadis." -- International Affairs


"Filiu's book breaks from the pack of works on the Arab Spring. Rather than focus on the grassroots opposition that emerged in 2011 to challenge the Arab authoritarian order, he casts attention on the state regimes with an eye to discerning the sources of their strength and resiliency. In so doing, he takes a long view to argue that State power, often disguised and hidden away, doomed the Arab Spring from the outset. ... Excellent." -- Professor John Calvert, author of Sayyid Qutb and the Origins of Radical Islamism

Reseña del editor:

In his disturbing and timely book Jean-Pierre Filiu lays bare the strategies and tactics employed by
the Middle Eastern autocracies, above all those of Syria, Egypt, Yemen and Algeria, that set out to crush the democratic uprisings of the 'Arab Revolution.'
In pursuit of these goals they turned to the intelligence agencies and internal security arms of the 'deep state, ' the armed forces, and to street gangs such as the Shabiha to enforce their will. Alongside physical intimidation, imprisonment and murder, Arab counter-revolutionaries discredited and split their opponents by boosting Salafi-Jihadi groups such as Islamic State. They also released from prison hardline Islamists and secretly armed and funded them.
The full potential of the Arab counter-revolution surprised most observers, who thought they had seen it all from the Arab despots: their perversity, their brutality, their voracity. But the wider world underestimated their ferocious readiness literally to burn down their countries in order to cling to absolute power. Bashar al-Assad clambered to the top of this murderous class of tyrants, driving nearly half of the Syrian population in to exile and executing tens of thousands of his opponents. He has set a grisly precedent, one that other Arab autocrats are sure to follow in their pursuit of absolute power.
