Overview

This book assesses the causes and consequences of the impact of Israel's war on Hezbollah in Lebanon on the Middle East. The authors describe the popular basis of Hezbollah in Lebanon among the Shiites, but also its relation to the country's other religious communities and political forces. They analyze the regional roles of Syria, Iran, and Hamas as well as the politics of the United States and Europe.

The book dissects the strategic and political background behind recent actions taken by Israel; the impact of Israel's incursion into Lebanon and effects on Lebanon's population; and the consequences of the war on Israeli polity and society. Throughout the years, Lebanon has confirmed its stance as Israel's Vietnam. The most recent war provoked the most serious political earthquake that Israel ever experienced since the 1973 "Yom Kippur War."
