There are slight imprecisions, and the odd intrusion of journalistic shorthand...And “the Alawite triangle” is unfortunate, Iraq war-influenced nomenclature for the coastal area. But these are quibbles. Giovanni’s book doesn’t make policy recommendations. It simply observes, and is much the stronger for it.
