Editorial Reviews

“Omri Nir is a tenacious and thorough reader of Lebanon’s politics. His portrait of the Shia leader Nabih Berri is full and judicious. Nir has no axe to grind; he has given that quintessential survivor in Lebanon’s politics a discerning and accurate assessment.”--Fouad Ajami, Professor and Director of Middle East Studies, The Johns Hopkins School of Advanced and International Studies & Senior Fellow, The Hoover Institution"A penetrating, nuanced appraisal of Lebanon's veteran Shi'a parliamentary speaker. In a fine political biography, Omri Nir brings into focus the link-man between what is probably Lebanon's largest sectarian community and the country's non-Shi'a majority. A scrupulously fair portrayal of Nabih Berri's personal story and political affairs--a timely, much needed corrective to the relentless Western media conflation of the Lebanese Shi'a with Hezbollah."  --William Harris.
