Peeling paint on my 1993 Touring Sedan

Does anyone know why it's peeling so badly? And do I have to strip the entire car (including door jambs, doors, under hood, trunk, and so on) to re paint it?

Well known problem with GM (actually, all the domestic OE manufacturers had a problem with it) paint. Started in the late 80s and didn't really get fixed until the early 2000s.
Problem is GM used cheaper materials for the sealer and the paint coats and it became a big issue for them. They had to fix many of these cars under warranty just for paint.

The only real solution to it is to strip the affected panels down to bare metal and start over using a good quality etching primer and good quality paint/clearcoat.
