>طلعت من فيلم داي هارد الجديد البايخ جدا أمبارح دخلت المكتبة المجاورة للسينما أول كتاب شد نظري كان كتاب "الثورة الإنتفاضة والمقاومة: قوة القصة" لـ (إيريك سيلبين) بلون غلافو الأصفر الفاقع وتصميم لمجموعة من الناس واحد فيهم رافع قبضة الثورة آآي بالمناسبة أنا أغلب الأوقات بحكم على الكتاب من غلافو.بعد ما قريت العنوان (Revolution, Rebellion, Resistance: The Power of Story Eric Selbin) أول فكرة مرت براسي كانت "ثورة أكتوبر" لأنها بالنسبة لي ولجيل كامل قصة فبديت أقرا في الفهرس حكمي السريع من عنوان ...more

An interesting book on how stories defines us as humans, drives us to fight for our cause, and ultimately change the world. If you're into storytelling and history - read it!

Fascinating, provocative, and sweeping work. An excellent primer for anyone who wants to know a whole lot about revolution very quickly. Of course, as a former student, I'm pretty biased.

A great read on the role that stories and storytelling play in revolutions--in shaping how revolutionaries understand themselves both in the present and in the context of the past; how revolutions inspire each other, how we explain, categorize, make sense of them; etc. As Selbin astutely notes, "stories serve to unite people within a shared society in which certain symbols, themes, and characters provide recognition, knowledge, community, and at times plans of action." Stories can be local or ...more
