From Library Journal:

This up-to-date overview of Syria relates the important features of the country's history, supplemented by brief discussions of significant institutions. Hopwood, a prominent British scholar, knows his topic well. While he focuses on the post-World War II era, he takes the reader back to ancient times to describe the country's background in a proper temporal and geographical context. The author characterizes life in Syria as being strongly influenced by the dominant Arab nationalist Baath party. He also covers the economy, educational system, and most impressively, the culture as expressed by writers, poets, and dramatists. Probably the best available book of its type. Recommended for just about anyone. Sanford R. Silverburg, Catawba Coll., Salisbury, N.C.
