Warlords and Merchants
The Lebanese Business and Political Establishment New edition
By (author) Kamal Dib
Warlords and Merchants by Kamal Dib
Book Description"Warlords and Merchants" examines the history of the Lebanese warlord/business establishment and illuminates local attitudes, which have often seemed baffling to the outside world. The book provides a close-up study of Lebanese leaders and the business class, and a seminal illustration of and insight into the resistance of local cultures and small countries such as Lebanon to the juggernaut of globalization. Based on firsthand observations and knowledge of Lebanese history, economy, language and culture, the author deals here with important issues that vex Lebanon today - sectarianism, traditional leadership, outdated business practices, an archaic economic structure and a deep sense of historical grievances. "Warlords and Merchants" is a must-read for policymakers, business and political leaders, as well as students and academics with research interests in Lebanon, the Middle East and international affairs.
