More enlightenment information and beautiful writing on each pase of this slender book than in most books on the middle east Ajami who is a Shia from Lebanon leaves the reader understanding the place of the religious and ethnic minorities in SyriaLebanon the history of their relations from Ottoman times through French rule and to the Assad dynasty the relationship of Syria and Lebanon since 1982 the status of the regime vis a vis its minorities not just the Alawites and Christians but Sunni and Shia the place of the threat and promise of the west and the US the nature of the Ba ath all in an almost day by day account of the uprsing from April 2011 to about February 2012 and a brief update going forward until this 2012 April I am my ex wives tell me a pretty well informed guy on the middle east and pretty well read but I learned something new on every page and from the whole a way of looking not only at Syria but at the whole Levant unlike anything else on offerHis emphasis is on the sectarian dimension of the war the bloody history between the Alawis and the Muslim Brotherhood of 1979 82 the role of the Sunni centralists in creating the Syrian state and their confidence that the minorities the Christians the Alawis the Druse and the Shia would fall into line and yet the civilized state that the Sunnis had created pre Assad He looks over the border at the renascent Shia Arabs of US liberated Ira and their distrust of the fundamentalist Sunnis whom they assume dominate the rebellion the suicidal intervention of Lebanon s Maronite leadership on the side of Assad and the central place of Damascus at the faultline between Shia and Sunni Arab since 680 AD and today where Al Jazeera urges on the rebels while Shia Arabs remember how the TV station was no friend to the Shia of Ira while they were being slaughtered by jihadists 2004 2006I have admired Ajami since the pre Gulf War days and since I wait upon his columns I have noticed that he has been relatively silent in print on the Syria uprising and the post 2011 development in Egypt if you re reading this you probably know than I did about his views on Syria since he s a freuent talking head but I never see talking head shows This book is obviously the explanation for the silence and its wisdom and beauty is well worth the wait It s written contemporaneously with events takes the form at times of a journal but that makes Ajami s perspective all the valuable It makes me wish he lived at my houseHe offers no solutions and however pessimistic you may be now writing on July 7 2012 reading it will not lessen your pessimism But Ajami writes with deep feeling and not a bit of cheap cynicism or saving distance from what is going on Stop read mourn for Syria and then go on with your life
