About this product
- DescriptionThis is a timely, incisive and richly informed assessment of the recent Israel-Leban conflict written by ted experts from the two countries: the Lebanese Gilbert Achcar and the Israeli Michel Warschawski. The authors describe the popular basis of Hezbollah in Leban among the Shiites, and its relation to the country's other religious communities and political forces. They analyze the regional roles of Syria, Iran and Hamas as well as the politics of the US and Europe. They then dissect the political background behind recent actions taken by Israel, the impact of Israel's incursion into Leban and effects on Leban's population, and the consequences of the war on Israeli polity and society whilst offering their assessments of future prospects.
- Author BiographyGilbert Achcar lived in Lebanon for many years before moving to France, where he teaches international politics at the University of Paris. He is the author of Clash of Barbarisms: The Making of the New World Disorder (Saqi) and co-author, with Noam Chomsky, of Perilous Power: The Middle East and US Foreign Policy. Michel Warschawski, a veteran journalist and peace activist, founded the Alternative Information Center in Jerusalem, a Palestinian-Israeli news organization that disseminates information, research and political analysis on Palestinian and Israeli societies.
