From Beirut to Jerusalem, Friedman, Thomas L.
2 Friedman, Thomas L. From Beirut to Jerusalem
Anchor 1990 0385413726 / 9780385413725 Paperback Very Good 
A read book, but no markings throughout, spine unblemished, NOT an ex-libra ry edition: Winner of the 1989 National Book Award for nonfiction, this extraordinary bestseller is still the most incisive, thought-provoking book ever written about the Middle East. Thomas L. Friedman, twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting, and now the Foreign Affairs columnist on the op-ed page of the New York Times, drew on his ten years in the Middle East to write a book that The Wall Street Journal called "a sparkling intellectual guidebook... an engrossing journey not to be missed." Now with a new chapter that brings the ever-changing history of the conflict in the Middle East up to date, this seminal historical work reaffirms both its timeliness and its timelessness. "If you're only going to read one book on the Middle East, this is it." -- Seymour Hersh. "From Beirut To Jerusalem is the most intelligent and comprehensive account one is likely to read." -- New York Times Book Review.

City of Oranges: An Intimate History of Arabs and Jews in Jaffa, LeBor, Adam
4 LeBor, Adam City of Oranges: An Intimate History of Arabs and Jews in Jaffa
W.W. Norton & Co. 2007 0747586020 / 9780747586029 Print on Deman Fair 
Jaffa - famed for its orange groves - was for centuries a city of traders, merchants, teachers and administrators, home to Muslims, Christians and Jew s alike. That is, until the founding of the state of Israel, which was simu ltaneously a moment of jubilation for the Jews and a disaster - the Naqba - for the 100,000 Arabs who fled Jaffa in 1948. Through the stories of six f amilies - three Arab and three Jewish - Adam LeBor delicately illuminates t he complexity of modern Israel, going beyond the media stereotypes and poli tical rhetoric to tell a moving human story. From the Christian Arab car-de aler, the Jewish coffee-and-spice merchant and the Arab baker who makes bre ad for the whole community, to the Jewish schoolgirl who befriends an Arab drug dealer, these people strive to make a life in a country born of confli ct.

Spirit of the Phoenix: Beirut and the Story of Lebanon, Llewellyn, Tim
5 Llewellyn, Tim Spirit of the Phoenix: Beirut and the Story of Lebanon
I.B.Tauris 2010 1845117352 / 9781845117351 Hardcover Near Fine/Very Good 
A tight clean hardcover, no markings throughout: What is Lebanon all about? Why has this tiny, fertile Mediterranean country become a byword for violence and chaos in the minds of much of the world? In "Spirit of the Phoenix" veteran broadcast journalist Tim Llewellyn wanders the streets of Beirut - the city he once lived in during the civil war - in search of answers to these questions. On every wall there is a poster, in every cafe a dish, on every building a feature, which suggests the history of one of the many peoples that make up this extraordinarily diverse and volatile country. In this lyrical journey of political and historical discovery, Llewellyn traces the signs, and tells the stories of the Druze, the Maronites and the Shia, The Sunnis, the Armenians and the Alawites. Interviewing footsoldiers and priests, refugees, warlords and gangsters, he evokes the cacophony of competing narratives, cultures and memories with which the city resounds. He also celebrates the qualities which unite the Lebanese, from the Hezbollah heartlands to the Gucci superstore: resilience, resourcefulness and spirit. As Lebanon stands once more at the brink of crisis, "Spirit of the Phoenix" offers an introduction to the country's fractious politics and an unforgettable portrait of a people that continue to rise again and again from the ashes.

6 MacKey, Sandra Lebanon: Death of a Nation
Congdon & Weed 1989 0865532044 / 9780865532045 Hardcover Very Good/Very Good 
This is an excellent primer on Lebanon and its internal politics for both t he general reader and the specialist. In an almost clinical fashion, journa list Mackey strips away the complex nuances of Lebanese politics and looks at each social and ethnic component individually. She covers the historical background and development of Lebanon from antiquity to current day. She a nalyzes the agony of the contemporary civil war and provides insight into t he intertwining of families and power politics. Also discussed is the role of the external regional and world powers, particularly the strong French i nfluence, the American and Israeli interventions, and the Soviet presence. This is an excellent supplement to Michael Hudson's The Precarious Republic (Random, 1968) and Lebanon in Crisis , edited by P. Edward Haley and Lewis W. Snider (Syracuse Univ. Pr., 1979).
