Abstract:

"Syria is ruthlessly ruled by the Asad regime whose narrow base results in an absence of domestic legitimacy. As a result, the regime has sought to divert attention from its own failures to external enemies, not least through its unrelenting refusal to make peace with Israel and its sponsorship of terrorism. Perhaps especially damaging has been its long involvement in Lebanon, where it has aggravated internal divisions and contributed to ongoing strife. Deeb traces in detail, based largely on sources in Arabic, Syria's long destructive involvement in Lebanon, and how the divisions within Lebanon have been manipulated by Syria to prevent rapprochement and peace. Syria's policy has been to maintain instability in order to increase its importance in the region through the threat of increasing turmoil combined with the promise, rarely realized, of "solving" the Lebanon problem if Syria's interests were addressed. The unwillingness of other countries, including the United States, to call Syria to task only prolonged the suffering of the Lebanese people."--Jacket.
