5.0 out of 5 stars Timely and revealing, 4 Sep 2012
This review is from: Revolt in Syria: Eye-Witness to the Uprising (Paperback)
Starr possesses a keen eye for detail and an ability to craft a beautiful narrative that transforms the stories of the people of Damascus and Syria.

At times brutally honest and revealing, the author avoids the judgements and the black/white views often portrayed in mainstream media. Starr tells the story of the Syrian people and their struggle for a normal life in extraordinary circumstances.

The author possesses the unique view of having spent 5 years living side by side with people of every belief in Syria and he avoids at all costs the reporting from the hotel room journalism that western audiences have become accustomed to.

To truly understand the complex situation and the massive human impact from the conflict in Syria, you must read this book.

This review is from: Revolt in Syria: Eye-Witness to the Uprising (Paperback)
Very interesting book to read regarding the build up to the existing war . Very easy to read and for those of you who have lived in the area is quite intriguing. It enlightened me to what was happening whilst I was living there and made sense to many of the things I saw and experienced. I have bought this book for 2 friends so would recommend this as one view of the present crisis from a foreign journalist who was living there.
