This study demonstrates that Syria's role in the Middle East has been, since 1974, an unabated terrorist war against all attempts to resolve peacefully the Arab-Israeli conflict. Marius Deeb provides evidence that Syria's role in Lebanon, since 1975, has been to perpetuate the conflict among the various Lebanese communities in order to keep its domination of Lebanon

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"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

    Look no more

    I have been looking for a book about the actions of the Syrians in Lebanon. I was very glad that I was able to find such a book. I would like to thank Mr. Deeb for his courage and I hope he continues to write such books and informe us more about the savagery that the Syrian regime imposed upon us.

    Concise and to the point!!

    For any serious researcher, don't look further, this is the book for you. It is a very good piece of work, obviously well researched and documented. And above all, it is the only objective piece of work I read on the history of Lebanon. Deeb as well as El Khazen(The Breakdown of the State in Lebanon, 1967-1976)obviously know what they are talking about, do not throw biased statements, do not omit incidents, and are supporting all of their arguments. All in all, an excellent piece of work. I admire the authors' knowledge, honesty and courage and highly recommend these two books.
