HASH(0x97089648) out of 5 stars What you thought you didn't know about Syria 27 Nov. 2013
By Curt Rhodes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Astonishing clarity and brevity in this collection. The juxtaposition of intellectual positions and logic create quite a space for thesis-antithesis-synthesis about a country that I have loved and lived in over the past 35 years - and for which answers are not linear nor apparent.

HASH(0x970898a0) out of 5 stars Informative read 21 Dec. 2013
By Nicholas Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Found this book to be very well rounded in all the major political, social and religious undertones of the Syrian conflict. A majority of the authors are well known international relations theorists, and they demonstrate to the reader just how much of a dilemma the situation in Syria poses to the international community.

HASH(0x97089864) out of 5 stars Genocide for Dummies 12 Oct. 2014
By Declan Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The Boston Review! Published by MIT in 2013! Edited by two American professors with a veritable smorgasbord of high-profile contributors! This would have to be a valuable contribution to understanding Syria’s ongoing turmoil. Right?
Wrong and the hint is in the book’s title of The Syrian Dilemma. The contributors who include such luminaries as Kenneth Roth of Human Rights Watch, a clutch of essentially right-wing academics and a few Syrians heading up phantom organisations make the same general description and prescription. The fault is all Assad’s and the solution is the same one which plunged Libya into the American-made abyss. Massive destabilisation, massive bombing of Syrian military and civilian positions, massive humanitarian corridors to allow the West’s mercenaries ease of access and that is about it. These were the very same demands Human Rights Watch propounded at the time of the Ghouta false flag chemical attack and it is also what this book proposes in 20 of its 21 dreary chapters. Bomb the Syrians, massacre the minorities, install a puppet government and get the hell out of the way when the demonic exercise goes pear-shaped.
Though we have seen it all before, we have not quite seen MIT or equivalent institutions prostitute themselves to the Pentagon so tackily for quite some time. The book is a fig-leaf for the Pentagon, a pathetic academic attempt to give the arms industry the moral green light to kill more Syrians. It is devoid both of analysis and of academic rigour. Because it includes pieces by partisan and non-academic Syrian rebel apologists, it also lacks academic credibility. We can only hope MIT and the book’s joint editors were paid well for prostituting whatever their standards they have.

HASH(0x97089e40) out of 5 stars Very interesting and well written 4 Oct. 2013
By Alicia Whitt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very well written. The author really knows his stuff and tells the real truth about the history and current situation in Syria. It is very interesting to see his take on it and how it differs from what we have been told.
