9780275953898: The Lebanon War (Studies in the Shoah; XIII)

In April of 1975, Lebanon, the tranquil Middle Eastern country called the Switzerland of the Orient, exploded into a violent conflict that lasted almost two decades. This book explores the convoluted politics and forces within Lebanon and the Near East that made the atmosphere in that tiny republic highly charged, thus inhibiting conflict resolution. This comprehensive study describes the strategies, battles, and conferences that kept Lebanon aflame, despite the best efforts of all concerned parties to terminate the bloodshed. Abraham looks at Lebanon from the inside-out, highlighting the conflicting politics of Lebanese leaders, the failure of the democratic left to take over the state, and the underlying problem of the PLO's presence in the country.

Review:

"Abraham's concise history begins with the onset of civil war in 1975 and concludes with the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon... As a handy blow-by-blow account, Abraham's book would be convenient and accessible for undergraduates..."-Choice

"Abraham's book in much more than just another volume on the Middle East since it puts new light on one of the most complex periods of the Middle East--and Lebanon in particular."-Aerospace Power Journal
