"The breakdown of state authority is the root of the current Middle East crisis, and what comes in its aftermath is the biggest question facing the region. Ariel Ahram helps us to understand at least one of the paths forward from the rubble of the old state system in this theoretically-informed and empirically-rich book. The separatist efforts he examines might not eventually succeed in achieving internationally recognized statehood, but they are already one of the most important drivers of regional politics." -F. Gregory Gause III, Texas A&M University "Ariel Ahram's Break All the Borders is a remarkable work of scholarship and a fascinating contribution to the story of the Middle East over the past decade. Ahram has mastered a breathtaking range of materials and presented them in an easily comprehensible fashion to demonstrate how the dynamics of secessionism help drive state making and state breaking. His meticulous, careful research leads to an important set of conclusions that should inform both academic study and policy making in the 21st Century."-Kenneth M. Pollack, author of Armies of Sand "This book offers a thoughtful and provocative perspective on the resilience of the contemporary states of the Arab world through the lens of some of the most resilient alternatives-the longstanding regional, ethnic, and religious allegiances laid bare in the aftermath of the uprisings of 2011. In outlining the fortunes of several separatist claims to statehood as well as the challenge to the prevailing order represented by the Islamic State, Ahram provides a salutary reminder of both the fragility and the hardiness of the region's borders." -Lisa Anderson, Columbia University
