Reviews

"Daher shows how the regime's crony capitalism and arsenal of repression produced inequalities and humiliations that fueled the 2011 revolt. While supportive of the uprising and its aims, he offers a trenchant critique of the opposition's failures -- a critique from within that should be taken seriously by everyone who cares about Syria." --Danny Postel, Democratic Left

"Joseph Daher's new book, Syria After the Uprisings, is perhaps the most detailed and comprehensive explanation of the nature of the Syrian state, the causes and character of the revolution, and the reasons for its defeat and, in the words of the book's subtitle, the "state resilience" of Assad's regime." --Solidarity
