Query: Syrian Civil War in Historical Context

Dear Historians of Syria, 

Is it too soon for historians to weigh in on the causes of the Syrian Civil War? I am wondering if anyone has dared to venture a historical analysis (i.e. one that goes back farther and deeper than the 2011 uprising, Bashar's tenure as president, post-9/11 and post-Cold War regional alignments and US military interventions.) How deep and far back have historians gone and how far back makes sense? Is there a place for understanding the current war in the context of 20th-century Sryian history as a whole and even including the Ottoman period?
