Syria in PicturesBook - 2005
Syria is a powerful Middle Eastern nation located on the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea. It achieved independence from France in 1946, and since then internal disunity and heavy military spending have kept the nation from prospering economically. Frequent invasions in the nation's history, have left a people of varied heritage and religions.
