Lebanon's Second Republic: Prospects for the Twenty-first Century
"This volume includes discussion of contemporary politics and international relations, recognizing Lebanon’s central role in regional conflicts. It then looks at other forces that will determine Lebanon’s future. The book features chapters that argue that Lebanon’s future is very much dependent on the progress of Muslim-Christian relations, on the viability of its educational system (that will enable its citizens to contribute to its economic development), and on the way that the concerns of women, urban planning, and the ecological crises are being addressed. The analysis of these topics will be of interest to scholars of women’s issues, urban studies, and the environmental movement, as well as to specialists of the region."
