Description

This study represents a first and very preliminary attempt to describe the development of rural policies and structures and their consequences in Syria under the Ba'th regime. The analysis pretends to no conceptual or methodological sophistication. Its basic limitation derives from the research method employed, entailing heavy dependence on a program of official interviews and village "field trips" undertaken by the writer with the cooperation of the Ba'th party authorities within a limited period of time (one year)
