Hezbollah - Lebanon's 'Party of God' - is a multifaceted organisation: it is a powerful political party in Lebanon, a Shia religious and social movement, Lebanon's largest militia, a close ally of Iran, and a terrorist organisation. Drawing on a wide range of sources, including recently declassified government documents, court records, and personal interviews with intelligence officials, Matthew Levitt examines Hezbollah's beginnings, its first violent forays in Lebanon, and then its terrorist activities and criminal enterprises abroad in Europe, the Middle East, South America, Southeast Asia, Africa, and finally in North America. He also discusses Hezbollah's unit dedicated to supporting Palestinian militant groups and the group's involvement in training and supporting insurgents who fought US troops in post-Saddam Iraq. The book concludes with a look at Hezbollah's integral and ongoing role in Iran's 'shadow war' with Israel and the West, including plots targeting civilians around the world. Levitt shows convincingly that Hezbollah's willingness to deploy violence at home and abroad, its global reach, and its proxy-patron relationship with the Iranian regime are all matters worthy of the utmost concern.

Review:

'While scholarly in tone and approach, Mr. Levitt's book delivers suspenseful and even terrifying blow-by-blow accounts of the most infamous of Hezbollah's attacks.' ---Wall Street Journal

'A detailed and gripping new study of Hezbollah's global operations. This excellent book should help anyone under any illusions about what Hezbollah really is to come to their senses.' ---Literary Review

'A meticulously detailed examination of Hezbollah's origins as an Iranian proxy in Lebanon and its forays into terrorism. . . The book sheds new light on the targeting of Western and Israeli interests in Lebanon and abroad, and the consolidation of its power among Lebanon's Shiite population and the country's political system--all of which are now big threatened by its controversial involvement in Syria's civil war.' ---Washington Times

From the Author:

Matthew Levitt is a senior fellow and Director of The Washington Institute for Near East Policy's Stein Program on Counterterrorism and Intelligence. He is the author of Hamas: Politics, Charity, and Terrorism in the Service of Jihad (2006).
