520 8  In this long-awaited work, Samir Khalaf analyzes the 
       history of civil strife and political violence in Lebanon 
       and reveals the inherent contradictions that have plagued 
       that country and made it so vulnerable to both inter-Arab 
       and superpower rivalries. How did a fairly peaceful and 
       resourceful society, with an impressive history of viable 
       pluralism, coexistence, and republicanism, become the site
       of so much barbarism and incivility? Khalaf argues that 
       historically internal grievances have been magnified or 
       deflected to become the source of international conflict. 
       From the beginning, he shows, foreign interventions have 
       consistently exacerbated internal problems. Lebanons 
       fragmented political culture is a byproduct of two general
       features. First, it reflects the traditional forces and 
       political conflicts caused by striking differences in 
       religious beliefs and communal and sectarian loyalties 
       that continue to split the society and reinforce its 
       factional character. Second, and superimposed on these, 
       are new forms of socioeconomic and cultural stress caused 
       by Lebanons role in the continuing international conflicts
       in the region. Khalaf concludes that Lebanon is now at a 
       crossroads in its process of political and social 
       transformation, and proposes some strategies to re-create 
       a vibrant civil and political culture that can accommodate
       profound transformations in the internal, domestic sphere 
       as well as mediate developments taking place internation.
