Roads to Freedom: The Latest from Syria

New Yorker contributor Wendell Steavenson assesses the mood of the Syrian people in the midst of the protests and crackdowns that have been taking place over the last five months. “Roads to Freedom” is an account of her recent trip to Damascus, which is in near-lockdown—and displays abandoned tourist sites, secret police in casual clothing milling around many of the squares, and anti-regime protests.
