An up-to-date overview of Syria, detailing the important features of the country's history and institutions.
This authoritative study focuses on the post-World War II era, with a long view, which details the country's background in a proper temporal and geographical context.
It shows how life in Syria is 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.
Hopwood, a prominent British scholar, knows his topic well...Probably the best available book of its type. Recommended for just about anyone. - Library Journal
