Description

New York Times Notable Books of 2018



Financial Times Book of the Year



Award-winning journalist Rania Abouzeid presents reportage of unprecedented scope in this engaging, character-driven investigation that exposes the secret dealings that armed and betrayed an uprising.



Taking readers deep into Assad's prisons, to clandestine meetings and to the highest levels of Islamic militancy, Abouzeid dissects the tangle of ideologies and allegiances that make up the Syrian conflict, and lays bare the tragedy of the Syrian War through the stories of those seeking safety and freedom in a shattered country.



Based on more than five years of frontline reporting, No Turning Back is an utterly engrossing human drama that shows how hope can flourish even amid one of the twenty-first century's greatest humanitarian disasters.

Review quote

`An extraordinary piece of reportage that explains the Syrian war through the stories of individuals caught up in the fighting. Abouzeid's book has the gripping and tragic qualities of a first-rate novel.' * Financial Times Book of the Year * 'Excellent... Probably the most perceptive journalistic account of the war so far... Abouzeid's understated bravery and ability to merge into the background speak to the power of immersive eyewitness reporting, foregrounding the experience of the people she meets and writing with modesty.' *
