Burning Country in North America

Yassin-Kassab BCTo promote the publication of Burning Country: Syrians in Revolution and War, authors Robin Yassin-Kassab and Leila Al-Shami are embarking on an extended tour of North America. This will be a great opportunity to hear both about the book itself and about the developing situation in Syria more generally, and to engage in dialogue with two of the most important contemporary commentators on the Middle East.
