This review is from: Truth About Syria (Paperback)
I'm sorry to say that this book, by the late, great Barry Rubin, is a total mess.
The first and most obvious problem is the readability; it is simply an utter mess from beginning to end. It is almost as if the late professor has been transcribed in a less than focused moment. The result is something that lacks any coherence in terms of subject matter. There doesn't seem to be any aim to what he's saying and there are extensive comments about major topics covering the Mid East and Syria, but unless you know what those points allude to, you'll have no idea what he's talking about.
Better to check out one of his other books on the Mid East instead.
