About this product
- DescriptionThe so-called Cedar Revolution in Leban, triggered by the assassination of the former Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri in February 2005, brought to an end three decades of Syrian military presence in the country. Here, Taku Osoegawa challenges the commonly-held claim that Leban and its leaders were simple puppets of the Syrian regime during the thirty years characterised as Leban under Syrian hegemony. Furthermore, by examining Leban s relations with Syria from the establishment of the Asad regime to the current violence in Syria, Osoegawa concludes that the Lebanese government has had its own reasons for aligning with Syria. As the Lebanese-Syrian relationship has had an ermous impact on the international relations of the Middle East, this book is essential reading for those interested in the contemporary regional dynamics.
