Inside Syria: The Backstory of Their Civil War and What the World Can Expect

By: Reese Erlich

Based on first-hand reporting and interviews with both rebel leaders and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, journalist Reese Erlich’s Inside Syria unravels the complex dynamics underlying the Syrian civil war. Through his many contacts inside Syria, the author reveals who is supporting Assad and why, describes the agendas of the rebel factions, and depicts in stark terms the dire plight of many ordinary Syrian people caught in the cross-fire. Erlich also provides insights into the role of the Kurds, the continuing influence of Iran, and the policies of American leaders who seem interested only in protecting US interests in the region. Disturbing yet enlightening, this timely book not only makes clear what is happening inside Syria but why it is so important for the Middle East, the US, and the world.
