The experienced journalist – who has reported from crisis regions for several Austrian and foreign newspapers and magazines – explains what the political and sociological changes in the various countries mean for global politics. She devotes an own chapter to give an outlook on the possible consequences on decision-making procedures of Europe’s governments.

Ramsauer also investigates the importance of social media in the ongoing conflicts and analyses the political goals of protesters in the various countries which have been rocked by protest marches attended by hundreds of thousands before violence overshadowed several of the different peace movements.

Ramsauer’s brilliant book comes on the heels of acclaimed publications by experts such as Volker Perthes (“Der Aufstand”) and reporters like Wieland Schneider (“Das Ende der Angst?”). “Mit Allah an die Macht” also focuses on the question of what reaction can be expected from the defeated. Furthermore, Egypt’s controversial President Mohamed Morsi and other movers and shakers of the region are portrayed.
