    schema:reviewBody ""Historical Dictionary of Syria, Second Edition, gives the reader easy access to the history and contemporary situation of one of the world's ancient civilizations. The heart of the work is more than 350 entries on influential political figures and events; religious groups and movements; economic sectors; social institutions, and cultural facets. The second edition includes nearly 100 entirely new entries and updates on 43 entries from the first edition. An important difference between the two editions is the inclusion of many more entries on social institutions, such as the family and coffeehouses; cultural aspects, such as art, architecture, cinema, literature, music and theater; and economic facets such as inflation, corruption, the public sector, and efforts to reform. There is also expanded coverage of Syria's political dynamics, with current information on human rights, civil society, and security forces." "This second edition contains a chronology that presents general information on early centuries and detailed information for the most recent years. In addition, the bibliography reflects significant changes in research on Syria. Not only does the bibliographical essay highlight important new monographs, but it also introduces the reader to credible Internet resources for guides to travel and popular culture as well as news and statistical data. The only specific reference work on Syria in English, Historical Dictionary of Syria addresses profound transformations in the country's domestic and regional circumstances."--Jacket." ;
