Over on my other blog, I have posted two pieces on Syria, one of several Middle Eastern countries currently facing unrest:

Syria part 1: Before the Assads

Syria part 2: The Hafez al-Assad years

I have not posted the third part yet, as I am still finishing it.

If you are further interested in these things, I wrote a much shorter summary of things you hear over and over again about Syria back in 2007: I know all about Syria
