Who: Flynt Leverett, Senior Fellow, Saban Center for Middle East Policy, The Brookings Institution; former Senior Director for Middle East Affairs, US National Security Council; and former Senior Middle East Analyst, Central Intelligence Agency.
What: Meet the Author/Middle East program. Cosponsored by Stacey's Independent Bookstore.
Event: Syria has cultivated numerous Lebanese clients and allies—most notably Hizballah—during its more than twenty-year occupation of Lebanon. Damascus, which sees Israel as a hegemonic power, remains intransigent on Israel’s complete withdrawal from the disputed Golan Heights as the sine qua non for peace with that state. In Inheriting Syria, author Flynt Leverett provides a detailed analytic portrait of the Syrian regime under the leadership of the Asad dynasty and draws implications for US policy.
