Editorial Reviews

Review

"Marius Deeb has written an authoritative, knowing book on the ways of dictatorship in Syria. It offers an unflinching analysis of the Syrian regime of Hafez Assad. Subtle, and superbly researched, it is the work of a historian who knows his way around the politics of the Arab world. A first-rate book." -- Fouad Ajami, Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies

"This is a major contribution to the study of inter-Arab politics and, more generally, of contemporary Middle East politics. Professor Deeb presents a meticulously researched and argued assessment of Syria's policies in Lebanon, a subject on which he is a leading authority. The book's point of view will arouse considerable debate and controversy, thereby increasing its visibility and circulation. Years from now, this book will be cited as a landmark contribution in the field." --Naomi Weinberger, Ph.D., Director, UN Studies Program, School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University

Format: Hardcover
It is a controversial book where some might not agree at all with the author, but from a person who was there during the war a lot of what the author wrote is very accurate and the Lebanese people from all religions suffered from the Syrian dictator Hafez El-asad and his control over lebanon for three decades...luckily things are changing now for Lebanon and I hope all the region becomes really democratic including Syria...

By Elie M on June 5, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very insightful book... It speaks nothing but the truth and shows the multi-dimensional behavior of the Asad regime throughout the years of the Lebanese war.
The author dissects the events of the war in a fine-grained manner, showing Asad's relentless, genius and terrorist decision making and actions all throughout.

Evidently, the interpretations made by the author stand strong after eight years since it's writing. The future of the peace-process, the war with Israel, and the relationship with Hizbollah can be easily predicted after reading this book.

Highly recommended to anyone wishing to understand the reality of the Asad regime's system of thought.

4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Avid Reader on August 13, 2005
Format: Paperback
The first five words of the title say it all.

The author gives a good picture of Syria's policies and regime, and their impact upon the long term occupation of it's smaller neighbor, Lebanon.

Format: Paperback
This is a very biased book peddling the author's agenda of hate-mongering and false history. Opinions are presented as fact without any substantiation. Don't waste your money.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a waste of money and time. Blind hate and propaganda driven by ideology and a false sense of history.
