Abstract

By a policy combination of political turmoil and economic aid the Soviets were winning the praise of the Arab nationalists. But the Syrian Crisis gave the Arabs second thoughts. They did not want to become too closely aligned with the Soviet bloc. Many important elements in Syria feared Soviet domination and this was an important cause of the United Arab Republic.
