Synopsis: Traces the life and political career of Syria's President Assad, discusses his determination to unite the Arab world, and analyzes his policy decisions

From Publishers Weekly: The author, an Israeli historian, offers a cool, evenhanded assessment of Israel's archenemy, without demonizing Syria's president Hafiz al Asad. Asad, who has used political assassination against fellow Arabs, is would-be leader of an all-Arab confrontation with Israel. Yet, as Ma'oz convincingly shows, the Syrian ruler (whose adopted surname means "the Lion") has manipulated his allies while strengthening Syria's interests. Asad has accepted huge amounts of Soviet aid but is by no means a puppet of the U.S.S.R. His unlikely alliance with Khomeini of Iran has weakened Syria's rival, Iraq. A member of the small, socially disdained Alawite sect, he rules over a predominantly Sunni Muslim country. His minions, lower-class Alawite laborers, make up Syria's new ruling elite and run his intelligence network. He is clearly a force to reckon with, and this book is important reading.
