Russian diplomat Maria Khodynskaya-Golenischeva analyses the background and the main causes of the Syrian Civil War. She reviews a wide spectrum of anti-government and pro-government military groups; highlights the importance of the US, Turkey and other regional players and the role they could play in the future; describes the complex Moscow diplomacy, both within the United Nations and on bilateral and multilateral levels.

The author, who perfectly speaks Arabic language and has a deep knowledge of the Middle East, co-chaired – together with the US and the UN – Ceasefire and Humanitarian Task Forces on Syria in Geneva. She has covered the conflict from its beginning, often visiting Syria and other countries involved in peace negotiations. Maria Khodynskaya-Golenischeva used a series of documental sources and enriched her book with her personal experience.
