Volatile Border The UK and Australian governments suggest that travellers exercise extreme caution, avoid demonstrations and political gatherings, and maintain a high level of personal security awareness. The US has issued a strong warning against travel to Syria due to anti-American protests and the possibility of violence. Families of US Embassy members and other US nationals have been advised to leave Syria. Kurdish populations were reported to have been restive in the spring, and entry into Iraq from Syria is forbidden to travellers.

    The government of Basil al-Assad has set a high priority on economic reform. Much of the economy is still state-owned and highly regulated. Some measures have been introduced to promote private enterprise and attract foreign investment; fiscal policy has focused on an overhaul and simplification of the convoluted tax system. The new cabinet installed in May 2003 - and reshuffled again in 2004 - has been tasked to accelerate the economic reform process, although it is likely to encounter many of the same obstacles as its predecessors in the form of well-entrenched vested interests and monopolies. The government must also tackle the problem of unemployment (officially 20 per cent but almost certainly higher). Annual GDP growth is around 4 per cent.

        Early History
        Until the 20th cent. the term Syria Ugarit ; human habitation at Tell Hamoukar in NE Syria dates to at least 4000 B.C. The Amorites , coming c.2100 B.C. from the Arabian peninsula, were the first important Semitic people to settle in the region, and they established many small states. From the 15th to the 13th cent. B.C. the area probably was part of the empire of the Hittites , although it came under Egyptian rule for long periods during that time. The first great indigenous culture was that of Phoenicia (located mostly in present-day Lebanon), which flourished after 1250 B.C. in a group of trading cities along the coast. In the 10th cent. B.C. two Hebrew kingdoms were organized in Palestine (see also Jews B.C. ) long invasions and intermittent control by the empire of Assyria . Babylonian conquerors also found success in Syria, and Egypt constantly sought to reestablish its position there. The Syrians were subjected to massacres, plundering, and forced deportations. B.C.

    History. PRESENTDAY SYRIA constitutes only a small portion of the ancient Since independence in 1946, Syria s history has been dominated by four
    PRESENT-DAY SYRIA constitutes only a small portion of the ancient geographical Syria. Until the twentieth century, when Western powers began to carve out the rough contours of the contemporary states of Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Israel, the whole of the settled region at the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea was called Syria, the name given by the ancient Greeks to the land bridge that links three continents. For this reason, historians and political scientists usually use the term Greater Syria to denote the area in the prestate period. Historically, Greater Syria rarely ruled itself, primarily because of its vulnerable position between the Mediterranean Sea and the desert. As a marchland between frequently powerful empires on the north, east, and south, Syria was often a battlefield for the political destinies of dynasties and empires. Unlike other parts of the Middle East, Greater Syria was prized as a fertile cereal-growing oasis. It was even more critical as a source of the lumber needed for building imperial fleets in the preindustrial period. A recurrent theme of Greater Syria's history has been the encounters between Eastern and Western powers on its soil. Even in the ancient period, it was the focus of a continual dialectic, both intellectual and bellicose, between the Middle East and the West. During the medieval period this dialectic was intensified as it became colored by diametrically opposed religious points of view regarding rights to the land. The Christian Byzantines contended with Arabs, and later the Christian Crusaders competed with Muslim Arabs, for land they all held sacred.
