All rights reserved. Army officer and U.N. Given the contentious subject, Norton's tone is remarkably even: Hezbollah is an organization he respects, but whose actions he does not condone. (Apr.)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. In the 1990s, its policies in support of this goal began to include parliamentary participation. From Publishers Weekly In this remarkably thorough, articulate portrait of Hezbollah, Norton, a Boston University anthropology and international relations professor and former U.S. After the 2006 war with Israel, Hezbollah has emerged invigorated

E. Beaver said Even-Handed Portrayal That Avoids The Hysteria. Lumped into the one size fits all portrayal of terror groups popularized by the media and the government, the author performs a valuable public service in removing Hezbollah from this fog of uncertainty and falsehood, portraying it accurately amid the context of radicalization and growing awareness within the Shia community in the 70's and early 80's. Norton highlights the inherent conflict within Hezbollah between pragmatism and dedication to the founding tenets of the organization.It is the resolution of this conflict that will determine the fate of Lebanon amid th. Primer on Lebanese politics Gary Rambo This book is entertaining, all too short and rather sloppily edited -- for example whether Israel destroyed 15000 homes (p.111) or 1500 homes (p.144) in the 2006 bombardment, as well as several typographical errors you wouldn't expect in few pages with large print.

Fragments on Hezbollah This is more like a collection of notes for an eventual history than a history itself--it offers neither connected narrative nor any other kind of systematization, and as the reader is not prepared for this by anything in the title, it is difficult to suppress disappointment. Particularly disappointing to me are the treatments of the origins of Hezbollah (which are left indeterminate) and of the 2006 war with Israel (which don't add substantially to the newspaper accounts I remember). As I had been especially interested in precisely these two points, the sketchiness

After Lebanon tottered close to disaster, Hezbollah and its allies gained renewed political power in Beirut. Following Israel's war against Hezbollah in the summer of 2006, the Shi'i group--a hybrid of militia, political party, and social services and public works provider--remains very popular in the Middle East. A new afterword brings readers up to date on Hezbollah's most recent actions.. The most lucid, informed, and balanced analysis of the group yet written, Hezbollah is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the Middle East. Most policymakers in the United States and Israel have it wrong: Hezbollah isn't a simple terrorist organization--nor is it likely to disappear any time soon
