Fuad Shahbazov's book traces the history of Ben Ali regime and Tunisian "Jasmine" revolution, that provoked a mass revolt in Arab world since 1960s. Tunisia became a birthplace of Arab uprising movement that spread along the region. Ben Ali had gone, but the people who ran his police state were still very much around on the streets of Tunis. The Tunisian uprising is a continuation of the encounter between social and democratic claims in the demands of the Tunisian people. Thus, Mohamed Bouazizi and his fellows, who died committing suicide, became actors who sacrificed themselves and by that act, inverted the relationship with the sovereign authority.
