Sinopsis

This book is about the Syrian crisis, both its internal causes and the part played by regional and global powers. At the heart of this analysis is a key element of Syrian society: its ingrained interconfessional character deriving from the historical presence on its soil of various religious faiths. Powerful minorities have, however, repeatedly applied political and military pressure to force the state to abandon its non-religious and non-discriminatory character. The author’s review of scholarly texts is combined with research in Syria and other countries. He has conducted interviews with religious leaders, NGO personnel, combatants, displaced people and other victims. Among those interviewed is the Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad, who offers his perspective on the crisis and on the country’s past and future.

Reseña-Revista Historia y comunicación social

In this English edition, the section on peace talks has been expanded into a chapter with updated and more detailed information on the most recent state of the negotiations. Finally, the book closes with a new chapter on the current situation in Syria, where the author analyses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the country and, specifically, on the resolution of the crisis, and addresses the consequences of the most recent economic sanctions that the United States and the European Union have imposed on Syria.In conclusion, Syria in Perspective is an outstanding contribution to the literature on the Syrian armed conflict and media coverage of armed conflicts after the end of the Cold War. The media content that frames the book makes it particularly appealing to journalists. However, its straightforward writing makes it an easy-to-read book, recommended for any citizen who wants to know the details of the Syrian crisis, beyond the stereotypes and standardised narratives of the mainstream media.

In this book Professor Pablo Sapagapproaches to a decade long Syrian crisis not yet completely solved. Along its 315 pages the author offers a wide range of clues to understand what has happened in Syria since March 2011, when in the midst of the so-called “Arab spring” the Syrian crisiserupted following similar events in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya. Among those answers outstands the intensive use of propaganda by all the parties involved in the crisis. Sapag frames that essential element of his book from a historical perspective which facilitates the theoretical understanding of the use and abuse of propaganda and how it has been channelled both through old and new media. Published in English by Ediciones Complutense University Press this completely updated and adapted version of the previous Spanish editions (2017, 2019).
