The Decline of Arab Unity: The Rise and Fall of the United Arab Republic
“In spite of its short duration, the rise and demise of the United Arab Republic – the union between Egypt and Syria (1958–61) – is considered a seminal episode in the modern history of the Arab world. At the time, many Arabs hoped that the union would herald realization of the pan-Arab dream, but its disintegration shattered this dream beyond repair. With the wisdom of hindsight it is also clear that this episode had a significant, lasting impact on the evolution of Arab politics.” From the Foreword by Moshe Ma’oz, author of Asad: The Sphinx of Damascus
