Tunisia's Civ-Mil Relations
See this post for a clear analysis of Tunisia's civil-military relations--why the military didn't fire on the civilians, why the military is different from others in the region, and perhaps why it may still end up playing a role. I don't know bupkus about Tunisia, but Steven Cook touches on the big issues and pretty deftly. I have no idea if he is right about Tunisia, but he is definitely looking at the right stuff.
