'A carefully documented, clearly-argued and elegant book that deserves to become the standard reference work on Lebanon and its neighbours for years to come.' --Literary Review
'Beware of Small States is a magnificent, scholarly achievement, amazing in its lucid and concise recounting of the tormented past century of Lebanese and Middle East history. With its publication, 33 years after his masterful The Gun and the Olive Branch , David Hirst reaffirms his place as a leading historian of the region.' --Irish Times
'[Hirst] is better qualified than anyone to write a sweeping modern history of the region from the perspective of this tiny, sliver of coastline that has seduced, infuriated and consumed one foreign invader after another ... Hirst rattles through this complex story with clarity and authority and puts the whole tragic story in the context of the wider Middle East conflict.' --Spectator
History of Lebanon from one of the greatest historians of the Middle East
