Lebanon: Death Of A Nation
Lebanon: Death Of A Nation
By Sandra Mackey
Congdon & Weed, 1989, 304 pp

A talented journalist's portrait of Lebanon, written in brisk and easy style for the general reader. It is accurate on the whole, demonstrates a firm grasp of the country's history and politics, and shows no respect for the myths that have clothed Lebanon's "golden age" of the years before 1975 when the current civil wars began, or for the self-serving policies of outsiders fighting their own battles on Lebanese soil.
