9780192801302: Pity the Nation: Lebanon at War

Pity the Nation ranks among the classic accounts of war in our time, both as historical document and as an eyewitness testament to human savagery. Written by one of Britain's foremost journalists, this remarkable book combines political analysis and war reporting in an unprecedented way: it is
an epic account of the Lebanon conflict by an author who has personally witnessed the carnage of Beirut for over a decade. Fisk's book recounts the details of a terrible war but it also tells a story of betrayal and illusion, of Western blindness that had led inevitably to political and military
catastrophe.

Updated and revised, Fisk's book gives us a further insight into this troubled part of the world.

'Robert Fisk is one of the outstanding reporters of this generation. As a war correpondent he is unrivalled.'
Edward Mortimer, Financial Times

About the Author:

Robert Fisk is a leading foreign correspondent in the Middle East - writing for The Independent, and The Independent on Sunday Newspaper.

Review:

`Review from previous edition Robert Fisk is one of the outstanding reporters of this generation. As a war correspondent he is unrivalled.'
Edward Mortimer, Financial Times

`Overall Fisk makes enthralling reading, and his account of modern Lebanon stands out as the most interesting book on the war in recent years.'
Amanda Mitchison, Sunday Correspondent

`Robert Fisk's enormous book about Lebanon's desperate travails is one of the most distinguished in recent times, as well as one of the most anguished and hard-bitten ... Fisk's reportage has a power which one expects but so often does not get from journalists. His account of the 1982 Israeli
invasion is the best that has been published.'
Edward Said, Independent on Sunday

`a truly tremendous book.'
Time Out

`a hugely and immensely moving book.'
New Statesman and Society

`a devastating witness to the failure of politics to guard mankind against itself.'
Simon Jenkins, Sunday Times

`the sheer accumulation of eye-witness reports has a sort of unstoppable power to convince.'
Patrick Seale, Observer

`Robert Fisk's poetically written Pity the Nation not only covers his experience of the war, but also digs for the heart of Lebanon.'
Jeremy Atiyah, Sunday Telegraph
