The Breakdown of the State in Lebanon, 1967-1976
Foyalty 90

The Breakdown of the State in Lebanon, 1967-1976 (Paperback)

£29.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Why did the Lebanese state, the most open and democratic political system in the Middle East, break down between 1967 and 1976? In this major contribution to the debate, Fazel el-Khazen rejects the standard explanations of the Lebanese Civil War and argues instead that the causes were due to the official state ideology, which recognized diversity, dissent and a highly pluralistic population, and then specific external factors: pressures from the Arab-Israeli Conflict, inter-Arab rivalries, and the Palestine Liberation Organization's close connection to Lebanese politics. Using an historical analysis, el-Khazen sheds light on the political situation of the country in the lead up to the conflict and the major role Lebanon's neighbours had in the events. The detailed and comprehensive account uses interviews with the key protagonists in the civil war and analysis of unpublished sources to reveal how and why the breakdown took place.

Farid el Khazen was Professor and Chairman of the Department of Political Studies and Public Administration at the American University of Beirut and Member of Lebanese Parliament (2005-2018). Author of numerous publications in English and Arabic, El Khazen holds a PhD in International Relations from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS).
