A Rage for Order: The Middle East in Turmoil, from Tahrir Square to ISIS

In 2011, a generation of young Arabs, from Egypt to Yemen, insisted on a new ethos of common citizenship. Five years later, their utopian aspirations have taken on a darker cast as old divides reemerge and deepen. But lost among the talk of dictators, foreign intervention, and terrorists, is the plight of the average citizens of these countries.

What are their stories? How do they see their future after years of discord?

Robert F. Worth is the author of A Rage for Order: The Middle East in Turmoil, from Tahrir Square to ISIS. He is a contributor to The New York Times Magazine and was previously Beirut bureau chief for The New York Times.

Mr. Worth will be in conversation with Roger Cohen, op-ed columnist for The New York Times.
