Overview

The 1950s in Lebanon were marked by bitter infighting, slander, rivalry and rumour. Much was left unsaid, much was misunderstood, much was lied about. Caroline Attié's book seeks to explain the truth behind the intrigues and cloak-and-dagger politics that dominated the country for the decade. It aims to correct, for example, the misperceptions surrounding the role of foreign interventionism, its causes and purpose, and looks for fact behind the rumours. Did the Egyptians and Syrians (then joined in the United Arab Republic) provide support for the rebels? Did Camille Chamoun try to amend to constitution to allow him a second presidential term? Many of these questions have gone unanswered until now. Attié's book, useful to all students of the modern Middle East, sheds penetrating light into these shadowy regions of Lebanese history.
