The Truth about Syria

Barry Rubin, director of the Global Research in International Affairs (GLORIA) Center and editor of the Middle East Review of International Affairs (MERIA) Journal, has a new book out, The Truth About Syria. Frequent contributor Andrew Boston recommends it highly. The book shows how the minority-dominated regime stays in power through exploiting radicalism, anti-Americanism and using Israel as a scapegoat , and why the political and ideological choices it has made cannot be changed if the regime is to be able to survive.
