The Syrian Uprising : Dynamics of an Insurgency Paperback / softback
Part of the St Andrews Papers on Contemporary Syria series
Dissecting Syria's ongoing insurgency from three perspectives-focusing on missed opportunities during the 2000s, transnational cyberactivism, and the profound impact of a famous Syrian actress's complex loyalties-the authors of The Syrian Uprising cast light on the underlying causes and early developments of the civil war.
The book also includes a presidential advisory committee's memorandum to President al-Assad, revealing the telling gap between the president's famous public claims that the Arab Spring would not spread to Syria and the warnings of brewing troubles that he privately received. Distributed for the University of St Andrews Centre for Syrian Studies.
