Summary Agriculture and Reform in Syria: Syrian agricultural economists Atieh El Hindi and Mounzer Khaddam join Myriam Ababsa, a social geographer in France, and Hinnebusch (international relations and Middle East politics, U. of St. Andrews, Scotland) to examine agriculture and agrarian reform in Syria under the Ba'th's revolution from about 1963-2000, and the contemporary state of Syrian agriculture that has been the result. They identify water shortages as a main problem, and look at how de facto privatization of state farms is re-concentrating land back to the same rich tribal and merchant elements that the Ba'thist agrarian revolution targeted
