Summary
This work examines the history of diplomatic relations between the United States and Lebanon during a transformational period for Lebanon and a time of dynamic changes in U.S. policy toward the Middle East. Drawing on tens of thousands of pages of declassified materials from U.S. archives and a variety of Arabic and other non-English sources, the book provides a new interpretation of Lebanon's slide into civil war, as well as insight into the strategy behind U.S. diplomatic initiatives toward the Arab-Israeli conflict
