9780231140119: Notes from the Minefield: United States Intervention in Lebanon, 1945-1958 (History and Society of the Modern Middle East)

Irene Gendzier's critically acclaimed, wide-reaching analysis of post-World War II U.S. policy in Lebanon posits that the politics of oil and pipelines figured far more significantly in U.S. relations with Lebanon than previously believed. In 1958 the United States sent thousands of troops to shore up the Lebanese regime in the face of domestic opposition and civil war. The justification was preventing a coup in Iraq, but recently declassified documents show that the true objective was to protect America's commercial, political, and strategic interests in Beirut and the Middle East. By reevaluating U.S.-Lebanese relations within the context of America's collaborative intervention with the Lebanese ruling elite, Gendzier aptly demonstrates how oil, power, and politics drove U.S. policy and influenced the development of the state and the region. Featuring a new introduction in which Gendzier discusses the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003 and the remarkable continuity of U.S. foreign policy from 1945 to the present, Notes from the Minefield continues to be the standard text on this topic.

Book Description Columbia University Press, 2006. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Irene Gendzier's brilliant historical study of American interventionary diplomacy in Lebanon is today even more illuminating than when originally published in 1997. The extensive new introduction ties this unknown and forgotten past to the ugly realities of the present, linked as they are to the Iraq War and the struggle to keep control over Middle Eastern oil. What comes across most clearly in the book is that the American people have for decades been deliberately kept in the dark as to the real motives of U.S. policy: hegemony plus oil. Above all, Gendzier in this book is awakening Americans to the failed responsibilities of citizenship, which depends on breaking the ongoing governmental/media stranglehold on true awareness about what is really going on in Iraq and elsewhere in the region.
