Description: "A vivid picture of the crushing difficulties faced by every Arab government."--Kirkus Reviews "Incisive, timely, and eminently readable. A wonderful guide to the complexity of the brewing conflict in Lebanon and what it will mean for the Middle East."--Vali Nasr The security of the West is threatened by escalating turmoil rising out of the Arab world. Among the region's fractured states is Lebanon, a small, tortured country poised uneasily between East and West. Improbably, this most unique of Arab states has much to teach about the Arab world. Like many Arab countries, Lebanon's population possesses little sense of common identity and no strong central government. The tumultuous history of Lebanon illuminates not only the challenges that Arabs pose to themselves but also the fear and hostility that arise in response to perceived threats from the West. Awareness and understanding of the Arab world's unique circumstances and pressures are the first steps toward resolution, cooperation, and solidity on all sides.
