Details

Syria has seldom been out of the news since the civil war began in 2011, but its history is not so widely known. Combining narrative sweep with telling detail, this account outlines the achievements of ancient Syria, birthplace of agriculture and writing, before charting the succession of invaders – Persian, Greek, Roman, Ottoman, French and British – who attempted to dominate the region. Finally, it locates the roots of the present conflict in the treaties that followed the First World War.
