The Makers of Modern Syria : The Rise and Fall of Syrian Democracy 1918-1958 Hardback

Part of the Library of Modern Middle East Studies series

Description

In the aftermath of World War I, Syria paved a path towards democracy.

Initially as part of the French Mandate in the Middle East and latterly as an independent republic, Syria put in place the instruments of democratic government that it was hoped would lead to a stable future.

This book tells the story of modern Syria's formative years, using previously-unseen material from the personal papers of Ahmad Sharabati, a prominent nationalist who served in different capacities during colonial times and early independence, first as minister of defence and then as minister of education. His experiences and those of others of his generation tell the story of Syria's short-lived democratic years, up to the union with Egypt as the United Arab Republic in 1958.
