The civil war in Syria is the deadliest conflict in the world today. And as Bashar al Assad’s is alleged to have used chemical weapons against its own people, the US and Russia are at loggerheads over whether the great powers should intervene.

And as Bashar al Assad’s is alleged to have used chemical weapons against its own people, the US and Russia are at loggerheads over whether the great powers should intervene. It threatens to erupt into a regional, and perhaps even global, conflict. But what are the origins of the war? Who are the main players, how much support do they have, and what is at stake? Will arming the rebels allow them to overthrow a tyrannous regime? Or will it just prolong the bloodshed - and install an even worse regime? 'The State of Syria: Past, Present and Future' provides a rare first-hand account of the political situation in Syria and the stories of the people most affected by the fighting. Charles Glass’s collection of essays written between June 2012 and September 2013 charts the beginning and escalation of the current crisis. This is an informative, thoughtful and at times heart rending anthology that looks at all aspects of Syrian society and its different political and religious factions. It is a book that will allow readers to understand what is really happening in Syria. 'Charles Glass knows and feels more about Syria than anyone writing today.' Patrick Bishop. Charles Glass's work has been widely praised. ‘Gripping … painstaking … sympathetic … Glass reveals just how inglorious war really is’ - The Times ‘Remarkable’ - The Sunday Times Charles Glass is a broadcaster, journalist and writer. He was ABC News Chief Middle East correspondent from 1983 to 1993. Since 1993, he has been a freelance writer in Paris, Tuscany, Venice and London, regularly covering the Middle East, the Balkans, South-East Asia and the Mediterranean region.
