in response to reader comment: good alawi

It's a good research, but I did not understand why the writer did not mention anything about the research written by on of the most " Alawite" opposite to Hafez Assad's regime; e.g. journalist, human rights advocator and intellectual Nizar Nayouf (Nayyouf) who spent 10 years one of Assad's solitary cells ! His book " The Modern Prince of Syria : a contribution to study the dynamics of transition from Bonapartist to Democratic State" , writen in prison and reminds us of Italian Antonio Gramcci's one, is one of the most important books that treat the problems of struggle for power in Syria since 1946 up to date.
