Syria and Lebanon

By A. H. Hourani

Oxford University Press, 1946, 402 pp.

A sound, scholarly review of the modern history of the Levant states, with particular attention to the problems created by the process of westernization. The story is carried down to the spring of 1945, thus missing the crucial events of recent months. There are documentary appendices, a bibliographical note and several maps. Issued under the auspices of the Royal Institute of International Affairs.
