    2 thoughts on “Inside Syria: The Backstory of Their Civil War and What the World Can Expect

    1. Journalist Reese Erlich realizes that the roots of the Syrian civil war are found in history. He gives us the highlights of Middle Eastern history stretching back to World War I that are influencing Syria today. He also interviews leaders, rebels, university professors, government analysts, and ordinary people. He discusses the influence of other countries, especially Russia, the United States, Iran, Israel, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey. Erlich was raised in a Jewish home in America, and [...]

    2. The complexity of the Syrian Civil War is illustrated in Appendix 1 which lists the participant groups in the Syrian struggle. There are 13 mostly armed groups opposed to Assad and 5 pro-Assad, 4 influential Kurdish groups and 4 participating foreign groups. Besides the groups in the Appendix there are countries with official and unofficial participation, policies and interests in the outcome. Reese Erlich, a journalist with many years experience reporting on the area walks the reader through th [...]

    3. كتاب ممتاز من وجهة نظر مراقب خارجي لأحداث عشتها شخصيا في غوطة دمشق خلال فترة الثورة .أنصح بقراءته

    4. I received an uncorrected, advance reading copy of this book as part of a GoodReads giveaway. As such, there may be some changes between my copy and the final version. (My copy did not have an index which is sorely needed.)Reese Erlich has done his best to chronicle his interactions with the complicated web of groups fighting it out in Syria and supply a timeline of how we got where we are today. I was excited to read this book as it's one of the first complete looks at the Syria's civil war to [...]

    5. قراءة سطحية وساذجة للأحداث الجارية في سوريا منذ 2011 تنم عن جهل شديد للكاتب بأبسط أبجديات وحقائق الوضع السوري. يحاول الكاتب ارتداء ثوب الموضوعية لكنه يفشل في إخفاء نواياه الحقيقية ومن الواضح أنه يأخذ جانب أحد طرفي النزاع تماماً ويقبل كل تسمياته ومصطلحاته ومقولاته وأفكاره وأس [...]

    6. الكاتب صحفي تعلم الصحافة بنفسه، أميركي يهودي معاد للصهيونية نقل في هذا الكتاب الاحداث مع ذكر معظم الروايات و لم يعتمد على رواية واحدة ، لهذا من المنصف الاعتراف بحيادية الكاتب. يبدأ هذا الكتاب بمقدمة للمفكر الكبير نعوم تشومسكي. ومن ثم مقدمة للكاتب يليها فصل يتعلق بتاريخ سوري [...]

    7. سرد جيد وموفّق للثورة والحرب في سورية منذ بدايتها وحتى عام 2014 بتقديم جميل من الكاتب نعوم تشومسكي وسرد تاريخي سلسل لتاريخ سوريا والحروب التي خاضتها نأمل بكتاب أخر ينهي بقية القصة!

    8. القليل من الصدق والكثير من الكذب ولا ينسى الكاتب ان يلمع صورة امريكا بطريقه رغم انه حاول كثيرا ان يظهر حياديته لكن شرحه عن التدخل الامريكي كان دائما ممسوخ ومقلل من اهميته وحول الحرب من حرب عالمية سببها الاول عدم التبعية لامريكا وموقع سوريا الجغرافي ورفض سوريا للخطوط الطاقة [...]

    9. لم يبذل الكاتب جهداً في إخفاء صهيونيته ، تفوق حتى على الاسرائيلين كيال زيسر في دعم النظام حليف اسرائيل.فجميع مراجعه و مقابلاته لم تشتمل على أية مقابلة مع أي قائد أو فصيل ثوري سوري ، حتى لو سلمنا بأن جميعهم ارهابيين فهو لم يكلف نفسه عناء لقاء لو حتى شخص واحد من الائتلاف الوطني [...]

    10. This book is a fairly serviceable primer for those looking for a handy means of bringing themselves up-to-date on the bewildering complexity of the Syrian Crisis -- up through mid-2014, at any rate. On the other hand, it is not well-written, surprisingly, and much too superficial for those who are already even moderately well-informed. Ehrlich does occasionally have some good insights into the larger geopolitical dimensions of the situation, and it is a quick read.

    11. This was a good overview of the history of the Syrian conflict. I knew nothing going in so that's what I was looking for. Some of the chapters got quite long winded, but all in all I learned a lot.

    12. In 1914, Britain had gotten into the oil game, converting its Navy suddenly from coal to oil; but without oil supplies, they felt their future required controlling all areas around the Suez Canal, like Egypt, Sinai, Gaza, Palestine and Jordan. The Sykes-Picot Agreement of 1916 was a compromise between imperialist powers that completely ignored its potential effect on the local populations and it still causes huge problems today. It was secret for a time because it was so obviously imperialist. I [...]

    13. Helt grei gjennomgang av konflikten. Man sitter igjen med en grei oversikt over aktørene, interne så vel som eksterne, og deres mål og interesser. Likevel lærer man ikke så veldig mye nytt, dersom man har fulgt landet i noen år. Derimot er boka en god introduksjon til et komplisert og spennende land.

    14. This book is terrible on so many levels it's frightening. I was going to give it 3 stars, then thought two, then though about not rating it at all. Then finally my mind settled on a lowly 1.So, if you have been following the Syrian Uprising as I have since it's initial outbreak, you will get little to nothing from reading this. If you think that after finishing you may understand what the future may look like, you will once again get little to nothing out of this. Obviously Erlich is not Anthony [...]

    15. This book is full of facts about Syria all the way back to the early 19th century. I'm not sure what the details of railroad usage contracts in the 19th century REALLY has to do with today's civil conflicts, but Erlich, I guess, decided these things were important. If you're writing a history term paper on Syria, this is probably a very good source to reference, but if you're looking for good journalism, you're out of luck. The only time Erlich ever seems even remotely aware that there's some so [...]

    16. Inside Syria is an insightful guide into the historical context of the Syrian Civil War. At times interesting, at times boring - sometimes, it felt as if Erlich was just listing dates, events and historical figures in chronological order, strung together by the occasional conjoining word - the book was always depressing, but what else can you expect from Syrian politics? Erlich captures well the confusion and brutality of the murky war. For example, the 2013 sarin gas attacks that nearly precipi [...]

    17. Nothing special but essential information. For Americans like me, a lot of this information was new. Quick historical look at the decades preceding the Syria Civil War.Well documented and does a good job handling the chemical weapons issue, arriving at the conclusion that very little is actually conclusive according to the current information out there.Good layout of the different groups. Honestly though, it would have helped to have some maps and an outline of the different groups with specific [...]

    18. Anyone wanting a detailed primer on the history of Syria (which explains the mess over there now) should seriously consider reading this book. Erlich, a longtime journalist who has visited the country on numerous occasions over several decades, gives a multifaceted account of Syria's roots, particularly the time between World War I to present day. This probably hit the press just before ISIS rose to power. There's a lot of material; I generally read about half a chapter a day to let it sink in. [...]

    19. "Inside Syria" gives a good look at the background of the ongoing Syrian civil war and the players involved. I was hoping for more. Erlich is no Robert Fisk. The book could use some additional editing and the style is pretty uninspiring, but it does make for easy and non-technical reading. If you're well-read on Middle Eastern history and keep up with current events from good sources there won't be much here that you don't already know. This is a good book for those who get their news from CNN a [...]

    20. If all I had to do was sit and read this book cover to cover, I might have liked it better. The issues were current and familiar, but I had a hard time keeping up with the different Syrian factions and the parallel US relations - who did what, when, etc. The book is well organized, though, and given the topic, it is written well enough for the interested general reader.I will admit I am often a slow reader, which tends to bog me down with some books (especially political non-fiction). So, althou [...]

    21. I recently realized that I needed a primer on Middle East history. I was kind of looking for a "Syria for Dummies" type of book. Explain to me what the situation is and how it got that way. Help me understand. To a certain extent, I found what I was looking for. The author's journalism is admirable. We're definitely seeing the scene through his eyes, which on the one hand, I appreciate that he puts his cards all out on the table. But at times I felt like I was reading an extended Op-Ed, more lik [...]

    22. يقوم الكاتب بسرد أحداث الثورة السورية منذ بداياتها السلمية حتى وصولها إلى مستنقع الدم و التصفية الطائفية التي تعيشها سوريا الآن، و ذلك بشكل موضوعي و حيادي بعيداً كل البعد عن الانحياز لأي طرف من الأطراف.و في عدد من الفصول يشرح وجهات النظر الدولية من هذه الأحداث، مبرزاً مصالح [...]

    23. I was wary because of the Noam Chomsky forward, but this is a relatively unbiased account of the origins of modern Syria and the civil war (as of early 2014 - a more current timeline is on the author's website).Ehrlich makes a decent case for foreign intervention exacerbating the situation, and suggests a potential future for Syria similar to Lebanon.

    24. توصيف دقيق لمجريات الثورة السورية قدمه الصحفي ريز ارليخ ونعوم تشومسكي منذانطلاقتها والوحشية التي قابل بها النظام تلك الثورة وما آلت اليه الثورة من دخوف الجماعات الاسلامية بقوة والتدخل الروسي والايراني واحجام الولايات المتحدة عن التدخل والدعم لاسقاط النظام السوري

    25. The Syrian civil war may become the next great world war. I hope many take time to fully comprehend and not let overgeneralised political rhetoric form their opinions. This book is the most current, comprehensive text on why and what is happening in Syria.

    26. especially enjoyable when a book dovetails with earlier readings -ie "Lawrence IN Arabia"very confusing primarily because actual events were very confusing. but overall improved my understanding of the complexity of the civil war

    27. For a person from the middle east, this book isn't very revolutionary. Most of it is mainstream information in these parts. However, I can see the value of this book for people out the middle east. I can imagine that it would be enlightening.

    28. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to learn more about the history of Syria and everything that has lead up to the Syrian War since World War I.
