Pity the nation : the abduction of Lebanon by Robert Fisk( Book )

18 editions published between 1990 and 2002 in English and held by 1,232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Fisk describes Lebanon's ferocious civil war and subsequent Israeli invasions, the Lebanese militias whose appalling brutality spared no one; the US Marines who found themselves trapped in the horror of Lebanon where many of them were to meet a terrible fate; and the Israelis, who tried to install their own puppet rulers, and with their 1982 invasion provoked war crimes of their own. Fully updated to include the Israeli withdrawal from south Lebanon and Ariel Sharon's electoral victory, this American edition has sixty pages of new material and a revised preface."--Jacket

The great war for civilisation : the conquest of the Middle East by Robert Fisk( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reaching back into the long history of invasion, occupation and colonization in the region, Robert Fisk sets forth information in a way that makes clear how a history of injustice "has condemned the Middle East to war." He lays open the role of the West in the seemingly endless strife and warfare in the region, traces the growth of the West's involvement and influence there over the past one hundred years, and outlines the West's record of support for some of the most ruthless leaders in the Middle East. He chronicles the ever-more-powerful military presence of the United States and tracks the consequent, increasingly virulent anti-Western - and particularly anti-American - sentiment among the region's Muslim populations."--Jacket
The destruction of cultural heritage in Iraq( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Discussion of the issues surrounding the destruction of cultural property in times of conflict has become a key issue for debate around the world. This book provides an historical statement as of 1st March 2006 concerning the destruction of the cultural heritage in Iraq. In a series of chapters it outlines the personal stories of a number of individuals who were - and in most cases continue to be - involved. These individuals are involved at all levels, and come from various points along the political spectrum, giving a rounded and balanced perspective so easily lost in single authored reports. It also provides the first views written by Iraqis on the situation of archaeology in Iraq under Saddam and an overview and contextualisation of the issues surrounding the looting, theft and destruction of the archaeological sites, the Iraqi National museum and the libraries in Baghdad since the war was launched in 2003"--Pub. desc
Pity the nation : Lebanon at war by Robert Fisk( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in English and French and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fisk, formerly of The Times and now Middle East correspondent for The Independent, writes as combatively as the events he so vividly describes. With a fastidious eye for detail, he rails against day-tripping reporters who betray truth with their clichés and loose language, constantly defending language against false appropriation: "terrorism", for example, wielded by one side to describe acts committed against them, deprives the term of any objective purpose and thus legitimises reprisal. He makes reparation with this unique and passionate analysis, still angry after all these years, which remains the most relentless and convincing account yet of the bloodiest quarter-century in Lebanon's history. --David Vincent"--Via amazon.ca Kindle ed
The point of no return : the strike which broke the British in Ulster by Robert Fisk( Book )

7 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Valentino's ghost the politics behind images( Visual )

3 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Valentino's Ghost takes viewers on a chronological journey through more than a century of images of Muslims, Arabs and Islam in the U.S. media, from the early 20th-century fantasies of romantic sheiks to today's damaging stereotypes as evil fanatics. Through interviews with Robert Fisk, Niall Ferguson, and John Mearsheimer amongst others, the film shows the way in which the changing image of Arabs and Muslims has mirrored America's political agenda in the Middle East. Valentino's Ghost aims to sharpen viewers' media literacy and increase their skills in questioning media representations, especially those of minority groups and people with whom our government is in conflict. The film ends with a report of a few Hollywood films that have provided complex images and avoided ethnic stereotyping" -- Container

The only house left standing : the Middle East journals of Tom Hurndall by Tom Hurndall( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The unfolding events in the run up to the Iraq war had given Tom Hurndall, a 21-year-old British student and photojournalist, an increased curiosity and desire to journey to the Middle East. In February 2003, initially as an observer alongside the Human Shields, he left with a passion to make a difference, to record and photograph the truth for himself. We follow his journey first from Baghdad, then to Amman and the Al-Rweished refugee camp in Jordan, and finally on to the town of Rafah in Gaza close to the Egyptian border, where US peaceworker Rachel Corrie had been killed just weeks previously. On April 11th, unarmed and wearing an internationally recognizable orange peacekeeper jacket, he was severely wounded while carrying Palestinian children to safety. He died nine months later in a London hospital. The book follows Tom's life and thoughts in the final weeks leading up to the shooting. Motivated by a sense of injustice and striving to remain objective we are drawn into his increasingly serious photographs and words, through extracts from his diary, emails and poems. It is realised through collaboration with the Hurndall family on the eighth anniversary of that fateful day, and follows the 2008 Channel 4 film-BAFTA winning documentary The Shooting of Thomas Hurndall
Being Arab by Samir Kassir( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Before his assassination in 2005, Samir Kassir was one of Lebanon's foremost public intellectuals. In 'Being Arab', a thought-provoking assessment of Arab identity, he calls on the people of the Middle East to reject both Western double standards and Islamism in order to take the future into their own hands. Passionately written and brilliantly argued, this rallying cry for change has now been heard by millions."--Page 4 of cover
