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.

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.

Another great read about how the Syria problems have evolved. Well worth reading.

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.
