(I'll tell you the truth. My admiration for anarchists grew 
exponentially since 2011. I could never deal with the black block 
nonsense but the anarchists were smart enough and principled enough not 
to carry around the "anti-imperialist" baggage. They understood the need 
for seeing things in class terms rather than the geopolitical chess 
game, bless their hearts.)

Anti-authoritarians Leila Al-Shami and Robin Yassin-Kassab look back 
over the past fifteen years of resistance movements in Syria, to 
understand the anarchistic currents that emerged during the revolution 
that began in 2011. Although this revolution has gone farther than any 
other in recent memory, it is poorly understand and has received little 
support. With Burning Country: Syrians in Revolution and War, the 
authors seek to change that.
