        Lebanon: A brief history AM GMT 24 Feb Lebanon is placed under a League of Nations mandate after having been under French control since the First World War. Covering years of history in pages is constraining, but Traboulsi manages to pick out various threads that shaped modern Lebanon, notably to explain the nature of the confessional political system. He manages to historically define the goal of the secular movement in calling for its abolition.

      Kamal Salibi is the foremost living historian of Lebanon, and his new book is even more important than his earlier one because it throws light on the present and future of the country as well as its past. With unique knowledge and insight, he shows how the ideas of the various communities and groups about what Lebanon is and should be are rooted in very different visions of history. Book Description. No area of the world has been more involved in military matters during the last half century than has the Middle East. The region has seen seven Arab-Israeli wars; three wars involving Iraq and two more in Afghanistan; as well as civil wars in Lebanon, Libya, Algeria, Yemen, Syria, and among Palestinians; and insurgencies in several other places.
