Reviews

"Erlich...clearly and succinctly explains Syria's current political and military stalemate in this important, informative, and well researched book.... Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the current turmoil in the Middle East." --Publishers Weekly STARRED REVIEW "Reese Erlich takes you Inside Syria with the kind of clarity that only a superb journalist can provide. This book is a tour de force, demolishing clich s and replacing them with realities of what the hell is going on in Syria--and why. The result is a gripping narrative that combines unvarnished history with immediate truth about Syria's present-day." --Norman Solomon, author of War Made Easy "A deeply readable and informative book that is particularly wise about the economic undercurrents beneath what more-superficial writers see merely as political or religious tensions. A fine introduction to one of today's most terrible tragedies." --Adam Hochschild, author of To End All Wars and King Leopold's Ghost "The most useful and up-to-date analysis of the complex internal dynamics of Syria today. . . . [It] destroys many of the simplistic stereotypes prevalent in the American conventional wisdom. . . . United States policy makers should view Erlich's masterful narrative as required reading. Had his book been available before the current violence in Syria erupted, the world might have been much wiser." --William O. Beeman, Department of Anthropology, University of Minnesota "Veteran journalist Reese Erlich, who knows Syria well, has written what may be the definitive account thus far of both foreign and domestic factors shaping its descent into fratricidal war. With the inclusion of important historical background, interviews from inside the country, and insights into the motivations of policy makers in Washington and elsewhere, the result is thorough and balanced reporting in which few come out looking good." --Stephen Zunes, professor of politics and coordinator of Middle Eastern studies, University of San Francisco "Erlich . . . has a rare gift for placing the human drama into its larger historical context, deftly introducing the reader to the many worlds that make up Syrian society. . . . Anyone who wants a quick but sophisticated primer on the Syrian Civil War should start here." --Joshua Landis, director, Center for Middle East Studies, University of Oklahoma "Read this book and you will receive an in-depth, objective, and truly fair understanding of what is taking place in the Middle East at this moment. We need Reese Erlich in the mass media." --Peter Coyote, actor, author of Sleeping Where I Fall "Reese Erlich is that increasingly rare specimen: a deeply informed foreign correspondent who immerses himself in the story he is covering. Inside Syria is fascinating and full of insights. That makes it a welcome antidote to the flood of ill-informed blather that has deformed our understanding of this alarming crisis." --Stephen Kinzer, author of Overthrow and All the Shah's Men
