About Destroying A Nation: The Civil War In Syria

Product Description Following the Arab Spring, Syria descended into civil and sectarian conflict. It has since become a fractured warzone which operates as a breeding ground for new terrorist movements including ISIS as well as the root cause of the greatest refugee crisis in modern history. In this important book, former Special Envoy of the Netherlands to Syria, Nikolaos van Dam, explains the recent history of Syria, covering the growing disenchantment with the Asad regime, the chaos of civil war and the fractures which led to an immense amount of destruction in the refined social fabric of what used to be the Syrian nation. Through an in-depth examination, van Dam traces political developments within the Asad regime and the various opposition groups from the Arab Spring to the present day, and provides a deeper insight into the conflict and the possibilities and obstacles for reaching a political solution. Review "Nikolaos van Dam, Dutch ambassador to five countries over a 30-year span, is one of the most respected experts in the world on Syria. Destroying a Nation is a companion to his masterpiece Struggle for Power in Syria, first issued in 1979 and completely redone in 1996 (CH, Nov'96, 34-1781). On this contentious issue, Van Dam fully presents the theses of those with whom he disagrees." (CHOICE 2018-01-01) “The best book on the Syrian Civil War, hands down.” (Joshua Landis, Director, Center for Middle East Studies, and the author of Syria Comment blog) About the Author Nikolaos van Dam is a specialist on Syria who served as Special Envoy of the Netherlands for Syria in 2015-2-16. He has previously served as Ambassador of the Netherlands to Indonesia, Germany, Turkey, Egypt and Iraq.
