This classic study of politics and society in modern Syria explains the factors that enabled the regime of Hafiz al-Asad to stay in power much longer than any other since independence. Through an in-depth examination of the role of sectarian, regional and tribal loyalties, van Dam traces developments within the Ba'th Party and the military and civilian power elite from the 1963 Ba'thist takeover up to the present day.
