The War for Lebanon, 1970-1985, Revised Editionby Itamar Rabinovich
The war for Lebanon a conflict of domestic & external forces seeking to shape & control the Lebanese entity began long before 1970 & unfortunately did not end in 1983. But these years, the focus of this book, form a particularly significant phase in the history of both Lebanon & its immediate environment. The events of this period unfolded through 4 distinct stages: the collapse of the Lebanese political system between 1970 & 1975; the civil war of 1975-76; the lingering crisis of the years 1976-82; & the war of 1982. This book primarily explores the interplay between Lebanons domestic politics & developments in the larger Middle East.
