Modern Syria

From Ottoman Rule to Pivotal Role in the Middle East

Edited by: Moshe Ma'oz, Joseph Ginat, Onn Winckler

This book tackles the social, economic and political issues that face modern Syria and it explores the historical reasons behind Syria's pivotal role in the Middle East. It deals with the development of Syrian nationality; the relations between minorities in Syria, and how the power base is likely to change; past socioeconomic development, and how this may develop in the next decade; Syrian foreign policy towards the Arab world and the West; the political balance after the break from the Soviet Union in the 1980's; and the Syrian attitude towards the Middle East peace process.
