This is an excellent, clear yet sort overview of the history of Syria from 1900 till present day. It is not a complete work but should be used as a companion to other more in depth analyses of the current political situation.

Good overview for those looking for a brief history of Syria. Makes a good companion guide to those studying or interested in middle east and Syrian history

The book gives a brief digest of an important time in Syrian history, and of a major element in the incredible tangle that is Middle Eastern history. However its author seems to have only a passing acquaintance with English syntax. Moreover, at one point he places Gallipoli on the Black Sea! A trivial mistake, although it implies that the Allies got through the Bosphorus, but it is disconcerting.

A brief but useful guide to a complex situation. A fuller, more rigours, accounting would be unlikely to be helpful for an average reader like myself, such is the nature of this tragic area.
