The Morning They Came For Us: Dispatches from Syria


Once in a decade comes an account of struggle that offers to be a classic.

Doing for Syria what Imperial lifestyles within the Emerald City did for the struggle in Iraq, The Morning They got here for Us bears witness to at least one of the main brutal, internecine conflicts in contemporary historical past. Drawing from years of expertise masking Syria for Vanity reasonable, Newsweek, and front pages of the New York Times, award-winning journalist Janine di Giovanni supplies us a journey de strength of conflict reportage, all advised during the point of view of standard people―among them a physician, a nun, a musician, and a scholar. What emerges is a rare photo of the devastating human results of armed clash, one who charts an apocalyptic yet now and then soft tale of existence in a jihadist battle sector. Recalling celebrated works by way of Ryszard Kapus´cin´ski, Philip Gourevitch, and Anne Applebaum, The Morning They got here for Us, via its unflinching account of a country close to disintegration, turns into an unforgettable testomony to resilience within the face of nihilistic human debasement. 30 illustrations
