Syria has cultivated numerous Lebanese clients and allies—most notably Hizbollah—during its more than twenty-year occupation of Lebanon. In Inheriting Syria, author Flynt Leverett provides a detailed analytic portrait of the Syrian regime under the leadership of the Asad dynasty and the strategic legacy bequeathed from father to son. He draws implications for US policy and offers a bold new strategy for achieving American objectives.
