In this hard-hitting book,MoreSyriaOCOs descent into civil war has already claimed an estimated 150,000 lives while nearly nine million people have fled their homes. This is now the greatest humanitarian and political crisis of the twenty-first century.

In this hard-hitting book, John McHugo considers why SyriaOCOs foundations as a nation have proved so fragile. Tracing the history of Syria from the First World War to the present, McHugo lays bare the causes of the current tragedy.

He takes in the countryOCOs thwarted attempts at independence, the legacies of the Anglo-French partition that fragmented it, and the failures of divisive French policies. He then turns to recent events: religious and sectarian tensions that have pulled Syria apart, the pressures of the Cold War and the Arab-Israeli dispute, and two generations of rule by the Assads. Did Syria ever have a chance? The conclusions drawn in this timely account are uncomfortable for both Westerners and Arabs alike.

?Providing historical context for the Syrian crisis, 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 regionOCOs (flawed) state formation.OCO Professor Raymond Hinnebusch, Centre for Syrian Studies, University of St Andrews ?A fluent introduction to SyriaOCOs recent past, this book provides the backstory to the countryOCOs collapse into brutal civil conflict.OCO Dr.
