Summary
"Lebanon and Israel/Palestine are two political entities that expanded in 1920 and 1967 respectively, and became divided societies characterized by periods of stability and conflict. This book provides the first detailed comparison between the two states and also explores the effects of their expansion on their changing relations. It looks first at how both expanded states attempted to cope with their predicaments, focusing on the relationship between state, community and security, before moving on to analyze the de-stabilizing effects of expansion on Israeli-Lebanese relations. The book draws on previously unpublished official documents, memoirs, media resources and films produced in Lebanon and Israel/Palestine, in addition to existing works on the two states and the Middle East. Bridging the gap between comparative politics and international relations, it will interest students of Lebanon and Israel/Palestine, the Middle East, and conflict and peace"--
"That Lebanon and Israel/Palestine are comparable, and that one can reach more general conclusions from juxtaposing these two ostensibly disparate cases, did not occur to me before the outbreak of the second Palestinian Intifada (or: al-Aqsa Intifada), following the failure of the Camp David summit between Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat and US President Bill Clinton in July 2000 and the visit of Israeli Knesset Member and future Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's to Temple Mount/Al-Haram al- Sharif in Jerusalem in September, which provoked massive Palestinian demonstrations"--
