HISTORY. For the history of Syria from 1920 to 1946 see The Statesman’s Year-Book, 1957, pp. 1408 f. For the union with Egypt concluded on 1 Feb. 1958, see The Statesman’s Year-Book, 1961, pp. 1527 ff. On 28 Sept. 1961 a national revolution broke out, and on 5 Oct. President Nasser acknowledged the dissolution of the union. Syria was re-admitted to the United Nations (13 Oct.) and the Arab League. The provisional government, «et up by Dr Mamoun Kuzbari on 29 Sept. 1961, had a National Assembly, elected on 2–3 Dec, which elected Dr Nazim Kudsi as President of the Republic (Dec. 14). Further revolts by army officers took place in March and April 1962, but dissensions among the revolutionaries allowed President Kudsi to carry on.
