Lebanon Adrift: From Battleground to Playground

Lebanon Adrift: From Battleground to Playground Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lebanon today is at a fateful crossroads in its eventful socio-cultural and political history. Imperiled by unsettling transformations, from postwar reconstruction and rehabilitation to the forces of postmodernity and globalism, it remains adrift.

In this landmark study, Samir Khalaf explores how ordinary citizens, burdened by the consequences of war, persisting regional rivalries, mounting economic deprivation, and diminishing prospects for well-being, find meaning and coherence in a society that has not only lost its moorings and direction, but also its sense of control.

Samir Khalaf is professor of sociology at the American University of Beirut. He has held academic positions at Harvard, Princeton, MIT, and New York University.

Synopsis:

Lebanon Adrift is an invaluable investigation into contemporary Lebanese culture and society for students, academics, and the general reader alike.
