"Offers the most up-to-date guide to Syria's enigmatic political, economic and social order" - The Montreal Review

Syria stands at the center of contemporary Middle Eastern affairs, yet it remains poorly understood by analysts and the general public. This collection presents an innovative study of key aspects of Syrian politics, economics, and society.

Each contribution is firmly grounded in primary research undertaken in Syria. The contributors identify current trends in Syria and go on to situate recent developments within broader contextual issues.

Fred H. Lawson is a lecturer at Mills College, California. He is the author of Constructing International Relations in the Arab World (Stanford University Press) and Why Syria Goes to War (Cornell University Press).
