- For Experts
Is Hezbollah a terrorist outfit in need of quashing or a people’s party that has stepped in where the Lebanese state failed? In this book, political scientist Aurélie Daher takes a deep dive into Hezbollah’s development and its connection to the Lebanese Shia community. Daher explains how Hezbollah shaped – and has been shaped by – the Lebanese political landscape since its beginnings in the 1980s. She also explores Hezbollah’s place in the larger context of Middle Eastern politics. Though not an easy read, this book gives fascinating insights into Hezbollah’s role in Lebanese history.
