While for many years scholars and journalists have focused on the more obvious manifestations of political life in the Middle East, one major theme has been consistently neglected. This is Pan-Syrian nationalism--the dream of creating a Greater Syria out of an area now governed by Syria,Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, and Turkey. Though not nearly as well known as Arab or Palestinian nationalism and hardly studied in depth, Pan-Syrianism has had a profound effect on Middle Eastern politics since the end of World War I. In Greater Syria, the noted Middle East scholar Daniel Pipesprovides the first comprehensive account of this intriguing, important, and little understood ideology.
Daniel Pipes is at the Foreign Policy Research Institute.

Editorial Reviews

"It is a measure of Pipes' achievement that he has not only formulated thought-provoking observations on the complicated interplay of political perceptions concerning Syria, but that he has also added to them."--Middle East Journal
