Sam Dagher - Assad or We Burn the Country: How One Family's Lust for Power Destroyed Syria — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, July 9, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

The only Western journalist based in Damascus from 2012 to 2014, Dagher, who has reported from the Middle East for more than fifteen years—most recently for The Atlantic—shows in chilling detail how what began as a regional struggle during the Arab Spring of 2011 has grown into an explosive global crisis. Drawing on exclusive access to Assad’s former ally, the Syrian army commander Manaf Tlass, Dagher takes readers inside the highest levels of the Syrian government, profiling the ruling families and the roots of their determination to destroy the country rather than yield power.
