9780745324371: A History of Modern Lebanon
Críticas:

Skillfully weaving together social, political, cultural and economic history, this deeply informed and penetrating study provides a rich understanding of the vibrant, tragic, but ever hopeful Lebanese 'door to East and West', tracing the intricacies of this fascinating society to their historical roots and revealing the complex web that has emerged. It closes with the observation that 'a new period in the history of Lebanon had begun' in 1990, a period that has been marked by achievements and horrors, but with the promise for the better future that its people surely deserve. (Noam Chomsky)

Fawwaz Trabulsi puts Lebanon's long war into a context that makes it comprehensible and, perhaps, inevitable. Everyone who is curious about that beautiful and tormented country should read his history, one of the best yet. (Charles Glass, author of The Northern Front and The Tribes Triumphant)

This is a unique work. Traboulsi provides a compelling account of Lebanon’s emergence as a state, a critical appraisal of its autonomy, a pathbreaking analysis of its social origins in the intimate and ever changing relationship of caste and class. Traboulsi offers an unsparing critical examination of Lebanon’s recent political history. ... This work ... cannot be ignored. (Irene Gendzier, Professor of History, Boston University)

"Fawwaz Trabulsi puts Lebanon's long war into a context that makes it comprehensible and, perhaps, inevitable. Everyone who is curious about that beautiful and tormented country should read his history, one of the best yet." Charles Glass, author of The Northern Front and The Tribes Triumphant

This is the first comprehensive history of Lebanon in the modern period. It is entirely unique, as the last history of Lebanon was published over forty years ago. Written by a leading Lebanese scholar, and based on previously inaccessible archives, it is a fascinating and beautifully-written account of one of the world's most fabled countries.

Starting with the formation of Ottoman Lebanon in the 16th century, Traboulsi covers the growth of Beirut as a capital for trade and culture through the 19th century. The main part of the book concentrates on Lebanon's development in the 20th century and the conflicts that led up to the major wars in the 1970s and 1980s. Lebanon in the 20th century has seen turbulent times, the results of which we still see today.

This is a rich history of Lebanon that brings to life its politics, its people and the crucial role that it has always played in world affairs.
