I find a lot of journalism on the crisis in Syria to be very one-sided and oversimplified which is why I decided to read this. Glass's well rounded and unbiased approach really widens the debate and has truly made me question my stance. Glass tackles the big issues with confidence and conviction without condescension. A great writer and very thought-provoking stuff. Would highly recommend to anyone who wishes to further their understanding of the politics, society and culture of modern day Syria.
