Lebanon is an exceptionally misunderstood country; its religious politics are typically misrepresented and denigrated in western political commentary. Politics and War in Lebanon offers a lucid examination of Lebanese society and politics. Mordechai Nisan examines Lebanon in its own terms, on its own cultural turf; then points to the causes of political disintegration in 1975, and explores the capacity of Lebanon to recover and retain its unique national poise. Lebanon is caught between its special historical identity as a country with poise, creativity, and liberty and the interminable warfare in the streets and villages of the country. Although its future appears dim, its resilience has enabled it to prevail in the past, and may yet do so.
