About this product
- DescriptionThe engrossing story of an extraordinary crisis that reverberated far beyond the shores of Leban as the first student protest in the Arab region. When chemistry professor Edwin Lewis praised Darwin's methods in his 1882 commencement speech at Beirut's Syrian Protestant College, he set off a fierce and extended battle over freedom of expression between liberals and conservative that over the next few years caused nearly half the senior faculty to resign, many students to be suspended, and enrollment to plunge. Although the conservative initially won adoption of a Christian Declaration of Principles mandatory for all faculty, it was repealed by 1902.
