About

Overview

Beginning in 2011, the Syrian Civil War has become one of the most pressing crises facing the world today. Fighting has left millions displaced, killed thousands, and destabilized the Middle East. It has also left minorities in the country vulnerable to terrorist organizations like ISIS and other armed groups. This book will provide students with the context they need to understand the ethnic and religious tensions at play in Syria, the growth of the conflict into one of war, and the ramifications of the inadequate international response.
