No Turning Back: Life, Loss and Hope in Wartime Syria

Author:

Award-winning journalist Rania Abouzeid presents reportage of unprecedented scope in this engaging, character-driven saga that exposes the secret dealings that armed and betrayed an uprising.

From the first rumblings of dissent in 2011, No Turning Back shows the unravelling of a nation: peaceful protests in Damascus collapsing into violence, families on both sides shattered by nighttime shellings, and religious conviction sharpened by rage to a radical point. Abouzeid shows Syrians finding new ways to live and resist even as the cruelty of President Bashar al-Assad’s dictatorial regime – and the rising threat of Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State – tears their homeland apart.
