Rania Abouzeid - No Turning Back: Life, Loss, and Hope in Wartime Syria — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, March 14, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Abouzeid’s chronicle of the Syrian War is an unparalleled account of one of the major foreign policy and moral crises of our time, a war in which so many have died, the U.N. has given up trying to count them. Based on more than five years of clandestine reporting from the front lines, the book starts with the first demonstrations of 2011, then moves through different cities to follow four individuals whose lives were caught in the momentum of events. Ranging from a young privileged man initially hopeful for change to a radicalized father to a poet-turned-militia-commander and a nine-year-old girl left behind as her father flees the military, Abouzeid shows us the scope of the conflict, guides us through its ethnic and religious intricacies, and gives us an unforgettable picture of a nation in chaos.
