"The book’s contributors present enlightening and in-depth discussions of various aspects of life in Syria and of the regime’s policies from approximately 2000-2013."—Middle East Quarterly

"This volume deserves close attention. First, for students and scholars, it is a highly informative analysis of the origins of the uprisings in Syria, and it provides a coherent and effective interpretative framework. Second, this book represents quite a good reference source for those scholars and policy makers engaged in discussions on what might be done in Syria once the guns are laid down: namely, the high risks involved in any pattern of reform that excludes and marginalizes large sections of society."—Middle East Policy

"This volume expertly lays out pre-conflict Syria, i.e., the first decade of Bashar al-Assad’s rule immediately preceding the uprising that broke out in 2011. It provides a political, economic, and social backdrop to the uprising, detailing the underlying factors that made Syria combustible in the year of the Arab Spring. In so doing, the book also shows us why the Syrian conflict has taken such a different trajectory than the convulsions we have witnessed in other Arab countries."—David W. Lesch, author of Syria: The Fall of the House of Assad
