Syria has long been one of the most trouble-prone and politically volatile regions of the Near and Middle Eastern world, and indeed the world in general. This book looks back beyond the troubles of the present to tell the 3000-year story of Ancient Syria: of the peoples, cities, and kingdoms that arose, flourished, declined, and disappeared, from the time of the region's earliest written records in the third millennium BC, through to the reign of the Roman emperorDiocletian in the early 4th century AD. The conclusion then looks forward to the Muslim conquest in the 7th century AD: in many ways the opening chapter in the equally complex and equally troubledhistory of modern Syria.

Based on first-hand reporting from Syria and Washington, journalist Reese Erlich unravels the complex dynamics underlying the Syrian civil war. Through vivid, on-the-ground accounts and interviews with both rebel leaders and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Erlich gives the reader a better understanding of this momentous power struggle and why it matters. Through his many contacts inside Syria, the author reveals who is supporting Assad and why; he describes the agendas of the rebel factions; and he depicts in stark terms the dire plight of many ordinary Syrian people caught in the cross-fire. The book also provides insights into the role of the Kurds, the continuing influence of Iran, and the policies of American leaders who seem interested only in protecting US regional interests. Disturbing and enlightening at once, this timely book shows you not only what is happening inside Syria but why it is so important for the Middle East, the US, and the world.

Syria’s descent into civil war has already claimed an estimated 200,000 lives while more than nine million people have fled their homes. This is now the greatest humanitarian and political crisis of the twenty-first century. In this timely account, John McHugo charts the history of Syria from the First World War to the present and considers why Syria’s foundations as a nation have proved so fragile. He examines the country’s thwarted attempts at independence under French rule before turning to more recent events: sectarian tensions, the pressures of international conflicts, two generations of rule by the Assads and the rise of ISIS. As the conflict in Syria rages on, McHugo provides a rare and authoritative guide to a complex nation that demands our attention. ‘[Provides] a real insight into the political fragility that underpins much of what caused the current civil war … An enlightening read, insightful and timely’ Sunday Herald ‘Enlightening’ Robert Fisk, Independent ‘Tells us with inspirational force how the Syrians have found the ability to speak out’ TLS ‘[A] very timely modern history of Syria ... McHugo provides the reader with a high level of sound analysis. The book is written both with academic scrutiny and with the empathy of an individual who cares greatly for his area of study.’ Journal of Peace Research ‘McHugo uncovers uncanny parallels between the pacification strategies of the French in the 1920s and the Bashar al-Assad regime today, exposing the continuous role of violence in the region’s (flawed) state formation.’ Raymond Hinnebusch, Centre for Syrian Studies, University of St Andrews ‘A fluent introduction to Syria’s recent past, this book provides the backstory to the country’s collapse into brutal civil conflict’ Andrew Arsan, St John’s College, University of Cambridge ‘A fascinating and timely study, admirably written with original vision … a pleasure to read for both experts and a wider audience’ Nikolaos van Dam, author of The Struggle for Power in Syria ‘A must-read for those who seek an informed opinion about Syria’s civil war, far removed from propaganda and bias’ Jordan Times
