Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Hafez al-Assad became president of Syria in 1971, following a long line of military leaders. At first, his goals included achieving pan-Arabism, more evenly distributing the nation's oil wealth, and extending the party's power by reaching into every aspect of Syrians' lives. However, through a series of poorly planned economic programs, censorship, and old-fashioned greed and corruption, Assad and his government brought intimidation and the loss of freedom to the nation's people. After his death in 2000, the nation's ruling party elected his son, Bashar, as president. Bashar has continued many of his father's policies, enforcing his own will on the nation and stripping people of their freedoms and economic prosperity. In the Assads' Syria, learn more about the internal workings of one of the world's most devastating dictatorships. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
Inhaltsangabe: Officially a republic, Syria has been under emergency law since 1963 and governed by the Ba'ath Party. The head of state since 1970 has been a member of the Assad family. Syria's current president is Bashar al-Assad, son of Hafez al-Assad, who held office from 1970 until his death in 2000. With the appointment of Bashar al-Assad in 2000, interest in political reform surged. Assad appointed pro-reform candidates to formal and less formal positions, but the 2001 arrest and long-term detention of two reformist parliamentarians signaled slow political reform. The country has been accused of gross violations of human rights in detaining opponents of the government.
