Description: The current conflict in Syria has killed more than 70,000 people and displaced fourmillion, yet most observers predict that the worst is still to come. And for two years, theinternational community has failed to take action. World leaders have repeatedly resolved not to letatrocities happen in plain view, but the legacy of the bloody and costly intervention in Iraq hasleft policymakers with little appetite for more military operations. So we find ourselves in thegrip of a double burden: the urge to stop the bleeding in Syria, and the fear that attempting to doso would be Iraq redux. What should be done about the apparently intractable Syrian conflict? Thisbook focuses on the ethical and political dilemmas at the heart of the debate about Syria and thepossibility of humanitarian intervention in today's world. The contributors--Syria experts,international relations theorists, human rights activists, and scholars of humanitarianintervention--don't always agree, but together they represent the best political thinking on theissue. The Syria Dilemma includes original pieces from Michael Ignatieff,Kenneth Roth, Radwan Ziadeh, Joshua Landis, Rime Allaf, and others.Contributors: Rime Allaf, Asli Bâli, Phyllis Bennis, RichardFalk, Tom Farer, Charles Glass, Bassam Haddad, Shadi Hamid, Nader Hashemi, Michael Ignatieff, AfraJalabi, Rafif Jouejati, Mary Kaldor, Joshua Landis, Bernard-Henri Lévy, Marc Lynch, Vali Nasr, DannyPostel, Aziz Rana, Christoph Reuter, Kenneth Roth, Patrick Seale, Anne-Marie Slaughter, RadwanZiadeh, Stephen Zunes
