Crossroads to Civil War: Lebanon 1958-1976

Crossroads to Civil War: Lebanon 1958-1976

By Kamal S. Salibi

Caravan, 1976, 178 pp.

A concise and most informative narrative of the background (from 1958) and events of the Lebanese civil war of 1975-76. The focus is on Lebanon's own struggles rather than the larger inter-Arab aspects, but the central role of the Palestinians gets full recognition.
