Abstract:

"A brief, brutal clash in Lebanon in 1958 followed the build-up of tensions between the country's most prominent communities - Maronites, Druze and Sunnis. This quickly escalated into a full-blown national crisis, which saw US Marines landing on Beirut shores." "This period of Lebanese history is often seen as the product of friction between pan-Arab nationalism and the growing threat to Western hegemony during the Cold War. But while orientation towards the West or the Arab world was a critical feature of these times, Kanaan argues that the 1958 flashpoint was the culmination of a century of unresolved conflict between these three groups." "Lebanon 1860-1960 is an insightful study of the various cultural interpretations that underlay Lebanon's vulnerable and volatile infrastructure, leading to what the US Department of Defense referred to as 'like war but not war' - a confrontation that was to have repercussions in Lebanon and throughout the region for decades to follow."--Jacket.
