Keeping track of the upheaval in the Arab World

Almost all major news organizations are keeping a close tab on the highly volatile situation in Egypt. The usual suspects: the New York Times, BBC, the Guardian, Foreign Policy and Democracy Now – all have decent coverage.

For closer to the ground coverage, Al Jazeera is great. For insight and analysis, I found informed comment particularly impressive. Its a blog by Juan Cole, who is the Richard P. Mitchell Collegiate Professor of History at the University of Michigan. His most recent book is Engaging the Muslim World, thankfully available on the Kindle.

If you stumble upon a particularly insightful commentator, let me know.


P.S. How are we supposed to get any work done with such terribly exciting events going on???
