by David W. Lesch
Syria has been called the crossroads of civilization for millennia. Lately, however, it is a nation more in the crosshairs than the crossroads. Bashar al-Asad assumed the presidency in 2000 after the long reign of his father, Hafiz al-Asad, and soon encountered momentous regional and international events.
Bashar al Asad succeeded his father, Hafiz al Asad, as Syrian president in 2000. The New Lion of Damascus" by D. Lesch (2005). Inheriting a worn-down dictatorship, he soon encountered momentous regional and international issues involving the global war on terror and the growth of democracy in the Middle East. While Bashar seeks a seamless integration into a changing political environment, many in Syria fear the loss of the political and economic power they enjoyed during the reign of Hafiz al Asad.
Bashar al-Asad assumed the presidency in 2000 after the long reign of his father, Hafiz al-Asad, and soon encountered momentous regional and international events.

The fate of Syria, very much tied to its young ed-president, will profoundly affect what type of Middle East emerges in the near future.
