Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A superior book."--Foreign Affairs

"His contribution here cannot be exaggerated, and the coverage given this ideology will be inserted into the analysis of Syrian politics for years to come."--Library Journal

"This timely volume provides insight into an aspect of Arab politics that has often been viewed as an idea whose time had come and gone....Scholarly and provocative."--The Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science

"This book reflects extensive research and is an invaluable reference tool....The bounty of this fine effort is in the abundant detail and the intellectual sweep of its coverage."--Middle East Insight

"Pipes' new book is particularly timely, and not merely because its subject is Syria. Pipes' braoder message concerns the instability of the Arab states--the weakness of popular identification with existing regimes in their present boundaries....[His] story of Syria's impact on the Palestinians is facinating."--The New Leader "In this book, Daniel Pipes not only presents a very plausible explanation for why Assad acts as he does, he also provides an excellent historical analysis of the concept of "Greater Syria."--Central Asian Survey
