Présentation de l'éditeur

For thirty years, Hezbollah has played a pivotal role in Lebanese and global politics. That visibility has invited Hezbollah's lionization and vilification by outside observers, and at the same time has prevented a clear-eyed view of Hezbollah's place in the history of the Middle East and its future course of action. Dominique Avon and Anais-Trissa Khatchadourian provide here a nonpartisan account which offers insights into Hezbollah that Western media have missed or misunderstood. Now part of the Lebanese government, Hezbollah nevertheless remains in tension with both the transnational Shiite community and a religiously diverse Lebanon. Calling for an Islamic regime would risk losing critical allies at home, but at the same time Hezbollah's leaders cannot say that a liberal regime is the solution for the future. Consequently, they use the ambiguous expression "civil but believer state." What happens when an organization founded as a voice of "revolution" and then "resistance" occupies a position of power, yet witnesses the collapse of its close ally, Syria? How will Hezbollah's voice evolve as the party struggles to reconcile its regional obligations with its religious beliefs? The authors' analyses of these key questions--buttressed by their clear English translations of foundational documents, including Hezbollah's open letter of 1985 and its 2009 charter, and an in-depth glossary of key theological and political terms used by the party's leaders--make Hezbollah an invaluable resource for all readers interested in the future of this volatile force.

As a person deeply interested in the Middle East (got a PhD on the subject), I have read a lot on several Islamist parties, Hezbollah being one of my "favorites".

This book was initially written in French by a historian (Avon) who is anything but a specialist of the Middle East (when he published this book, he was severely criticized by his peers btw, who accused him - rightfully - of trying to make easy money). The book was seriously criticized in France, for being a quick and badly done "rechauffé d'écrits antérieurs", which means a badly-done mix of older, second-hand (and more than once badly reviewed) texts.

Personnally, I have stopped as soon as after chapter one to count the inaccurate facts and the number of whimsical interpretations by the author, let aside the fact that the guy has obviously no real knowledge/understanding of Lebanese/Middle Eastern politics.

The author has tried to be original by publishing as appendices the translation of two political documents edited by the party. Unfortunately, if it is true that the first one (the Open Letter of 1985) has rarely been translated in French, it has already been in English something like twenty times, and the second one (the "Second document of 2009", which caused a lot of media talking during the first two weeks, then was totally and rightfully forgotten) has no relevant importance in explaining anything about Hezbollah.

In other words: a totally useless book. If you really want to go for something interesting on Hezbollah, go for "Hezbollah, the changing face of terrorism", by Palmer Harik, or "In the Path of Hezbollah" by Nizar Hamzeh (available on Amazon! :-)). The vice-secretary general of the party, Naïm Qassem has written a very interesting one too ("Hezbollah, the story from within"). Of course, careful with this one since it is written by somebody who's from the "inside" (propaganda!), but still very interesting, full with details on the party that you won't find anywhere else.
