    Written by a leading specialist who has had many meetings with President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, this lucid and timely book will help you to comprehend the country's bitter civil war and the tragedy of the siege of Aleppo. Tracing events from Assad's accession in 2000, when he was hailed as a reformer, to his violent reaction to the Arab Spring of 2011, it analyses the failure of his leadership and the forces that turned a liberal into a tyrant.
