A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. As the dominant political force in Lebanon and one of the most powerful post-Islamist organizations in the world, Hizbullah is a source of great controversy and uncertainty in the West. Despite the significant attention paid to this group by the media, the details of Hizbullah s evolution have frequently confounded politicians-and even scholars. In this important study, Joseph Alagha, a scholar with unprecedented access to the organization, exhaustively and objectively analyzes Hizbullah s historical evolution and offers a revolutionary new perspective on the political phenomenon of the organization. Hizbullah s Identity Construction is a timely examination of one of the world s most turbulent regions; a major contribution to the study of contemporary Islamic political movements in the Middle East; and a refreshing departure from the bland hagiographies and ad hominem attacks that are all too common in studies of Hizbullah s murky history. Superbly documented and argued, and rooted in broad knowledge of contemporary Islamist political thought, this study brings much-needed clarity to a hot-button subject.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The important study offers a revolutionary new perspective on the political phenomenon of Hizbullah whose evolution has frequently confounded scholars and politicians. Drawing on his unparalleled access to primary sources, Alagha has produced a unique work which traces all the shifts in Hizbullah's construction and reconstruction of its identity.

Critique:

Alagha offers a nuanced and sophisticated look at how Hizbullah s ideology and political tactics have evolved. His work sheds light on an important, but to Western audiences mysterious and opaque, political force in Lebanon. --Daniel L. Byman, Director of Georgetown s Security Studies Program and the Center for Peace and Security Studies and Professor at the School of Foreign Service.

Joseph Alagha s book is to date one of the most scrupulous and meticulously researched works on Hizbullah. Articulate, and devastatingly accurate, Alagha s work is a refreshing departure from the bland panegyric hagiographies that have defined the canon of those plodding the marshes of Hizbullah s murky history. --Franck Salameh, Assistant Professor of Near Eastern Studies, Arabic, and Hebrew, Boston College, USA. Author of Language, Memory and Identity in the Middle East: The Case of Lebanon (2010)

Joseph Alagha has written the most up-to-date study of the Shi i organization, Hizbullah. Through an analysis of Hizbullah s identity, Alagha carefully follows the evolution of the organization s political ideology as it has changed to respond to the challenges of the time. His book underscores the dynamism of Hizbullah and demonstrates the extent of the organization s successes as well as predicaments and possible future challenges. To the best of my knowledge, there is no work that covers the evolution of Hizbullah s ideology all the way to 2010 so extensively and meticulously. --Professor Asher Kaufman, a leading specialist on the tri-border area of Israel, Lebanon and Syria, and a Lebanon Identity expert, Notre Dame University, USA
