"A solid, descriptive analysis of Hizballah" - Journal of Palestine Studies

"A detailed study by a true scholar-practitioner, Hezbollah from Revolution to Pragmatism should be required reading for anyone interested in really understanding this complex political, social and militant organization." - Dr. Matthew Levitt, Director of the Stein Program on Counterterrorism and Intelligence at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Intelligence and Analysis.

"Terrorism experts and security agencies in the US and around the world agree that Lebanese Hezbollah is one of the most dangerous terrorist organizations in the world. Hezbollah enjoy extensive Iranian financial and military support which paves the way for its terror and psychological campaigns. This book is by far the best book published for many years on Hezbollah. The author's unique point of view which combines scholarly approaches with extensive field experience helps to comprehend the complex and dynamic relationship of the Hezbollah-Iran-Lebanon triangle. The book is a must read for decision makers, scholars, students and anyone who is interested in the nature of modern terrorism." - Dr. Boaz Ganor, Koret Distinguished Visiting Fellow at Hoover Institution, Stanford University
