about

The unsung heroes and real victims of wars in the Middle East are the civilian populations. Quickly forgotten, they have all too frequently been forced to endure the brutalities of war and its aftermath. Behind political calculations, military strategy, and technological innovations, it is the unarmed civilian population that is expected to make the maximum sacrifices. Wars reflect the fears and trepidations of ordinary men and women about the ability of their leaders to lead their nations during critical times and to make sensible choices. Civilians suffer even when clear-cut victories are achieved in the battlefield, and their problems often begin when the guns fall silent. Their attempts to reconstruct their lives and livelihood are, however, generally ignored, forgotten, and unspoken. This book examines the prolonged Arab-Israeli conflict, the Lebanese civil war, and the periodic upsurges of inter-state and internal tensions in the Gulf region. It redresses the balance, reminding all that the 'collateral damage' of war actually has a serious and enduring impact upon Middle Eastern societies and should not be neglected.
