Facts & Analysis: Understanding the multifaceted histories of the Lebanese Civil War

๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡ง Lebanon

History

Most official accounts, namely Lebanese history books, end with the independence from the French colonization project (more commonly known as the mandate). The 15 years civil war is considered a touchy topic not to be discussed at schools. So, most young people get to know the war through the stories of their parents โ€” if they are open to talk about it, and most are not, or through the propaganda of parties ruled by warlords-turned-politicians/businessmen. This list offers books and resources to learn the facts and engage with different analyses of the war through the eyes of local authors. The war was a topic of interest for many Western journalists and scholars as well; these books will not be listed here but can be found in the Civil War Diwan.
