My House in Damascus: An Inside View of the Syrian Crisis

Diana Darke

How did Syrias revolution lose its way? Drawing on the authors firsthand knowledge of the countrys complex religious and ethnic communities, this book illuminates the darker recesses of Syrias history, politics, and society. With the unique perspective of an Arabic-speaking British woman, Diana Darke became deeply embedded in all levels of Syrian society when she bought and restored a house in a mixed Sunni/Shia neighborhood of the walled Old City of Damascus. In September 2012, as fighting intensified and millions were forced to flee their homes, she offered her house as a sanctuary to friends. By following her experiences and struggles with the realities of life on the ground inside Syria, the reader will arrive at a clearer understanding of why the country remains locked in conflict and why most ordinary Syrians are caught between a repressive government and a splintering opposition.

The UN Women/USNC Gulf Coast Book Club met on Monday,November 9, 2015 to discuss My House in Damascus: An Inside View of the Syrian Revolution, by Diana Darke. The author has traveled through Syria since 1978, writing guide books for the entire region.
