Your Call: The Syrian civil war

Jan 4, 2016

On the January 5th edition of  Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with professor Samer Abboud about his new book Syria.

The 5- year old brutal and horrific war in Syria has killed more than 200,000 people. With 8 million internally displaced and 4 million refugees, the war in Syria has created the worst humanitarian and refugees crisis of our time. How did Syria get to this point and what the future hold? Join the conversation, on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar,  and you.

Samer Abboud, associate professor of History and International Studies at Arcadia University and author of the new book Syria
