The struggle for power in Syria : politics and society under Asad and the Baʻth Party by Nikolaos van Dam( )

51 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published for the first time in a fully revised and updated paperback edition, Nikolaos van Dam's book is a classic study of politics and society in modern Syria. Explaining the factors that have enabled the regime of Hafiz al-Asad to stay in power much longer than any other since independence, the book shows how Asad's disappearance may seriously disrupt Syria's uneasy stability. Through an in-depth examination of the role of sectarian, regional and tribal loyalties, van Dam traces developments within the Ba'th Party and the military and civilian power elite from the 1963 Ba'thist takeover up to the present day. He shows how the period of profound social change that followed 1963 saw the rise of the Islamic minority communities in national politics and the transformation of the lives of people from the countryside. Particular attention is given to issues such as the implications for Syria's future of the monopolization of power by Asad and his Alawi-dominated officers' faction; Sunni opposition to the regime; and the evolution of Syrian politics through the 1980s and 90s. This book will be of great interest to students of politics and society in the Middle East and the Third World

Destroying a nation : the civil war in Syria by Nikolaos van Dam( Book )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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, the 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, and the rise and expansion of ISIS. Through an in-depth examination of the role of sectarian, regional and tribal loyalties in Syria, 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
