Glorious propaganda from the Arab Ba’ath Socialist Party, two years after the largely bloodless Syrian military coup and one year before the coup d'état led by Salah Jadid. Despite its positive tone and its celebration of the nationalisation of means of production (industry, agriculture and oil 'potential'), Syria was, at the time of publication, under Emergency Law, which effectively suspended most constitutional protections for citizens. The country remained under Emergency Law until 2011 and the start of the current conflict.
