Robin Wright on 'Rock the Casbah'

The Takeaway
The World
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? And what do they want the future to look like? 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.
