Lebanon, a country no bigger than Connecticut, has become a battleground for the political, strategic and ideological conflicts of its neighbors and the great powers. It has come to reflect the broad historical experiences of the modern Middle East. Beware of Small States is an elegant and incisive history of Lebanon culminating with the 2006 war between Israel and Hezbollah and its aftermath. David Hirsta former Middle East correspondent for The Guardian, whose tough, skeptical voice has earned him death threats and seen him banned from six Arab countriescrafts a narrative that is essential for anyone wishing to understand the current political climate of the Middle East.

Review:

'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
