Barry Rubin Takes a Close Look at the Syrian Regime

After meeting with a members of the Israeli counter-terrorism community this past week while in Israel, I recieved an email today from Professor Barry Rubin, the Director of the Global Research in International Affairs (GLORIA) Center and Editor of the Middle East Review of International Affairs (MERIA) Journal. He confirmed that his latest book on the Syrian Regime was just released.

Terrorism, radical Islamist Jihad, Iraq, Iran’s growing power, and the Arab-Israeli conflict all beset the West and in each Syria plays a central, threatening role.

Barry Rubin’s new book The Truth about Syria explains Syria’s regime, interests, policies, and society, as well as how it shows how Arab and Muslim world politics and ideology work.

To survive, Syria’s minority-dominated, dictatorial, and economically incompetent government needs radicalism, control over Lebanon, regional instability, anti-Americanism, and using Israel as a scapegoat. The Truth About Syria explains how the country has run; how it attacks U.S. interests; and why the regime is incapable of another type of policy.

Barry Rubin has written and edited 50 books on the Middle East and U.S. foreign policy. He is director of the Global Research in International Affairs (GLORIA) Center and editor of the Middle East Review of International Affairs (MERIA) Journal, the world’s largest journal on the region.

With the situation in the Middle East as it is, Professor Rubin’s book could not have been released at a better time.

Someone needs to send a copy to Nancy Pelosi.
