'Most appraisals of Hezbollah from a left-wing perspective have focused, often solely, on its role in the fight against the Israeli occupation of Lebanon, thus serving the party's own mythology. The merit of this iconoclastic book is that it endeavours to analyse Hezbollah from a historical materialist perspective' -- iconoclastic
'An insightful and timely analysis of Hezbollah, situating the party within a fascinating account of the wider Lebanese political economy. An important contribution' -- Adam Hanieh, SOAS, University of London
'Timely...[a] well-rounded and incisive discussion of the organisation's place in the contemporary global order' -- Muftah
'Both an excellent introduction and fine analysis of Hezbollah as a political entity in Lebanon as well as a social movement ... Highly recommended' -- CHOICE
'[An] excellent book ... [This] book is a must-read for those seeking to understand Middle Eastern politics. It provides much needed detail and historical context for understanding the rise of one of the most important political parties in the region' -- Marxist Left Review
'Essential reading for anyone interested in gaining a more complete understanding of Hezbollah, or present day Lebanese politics' -- Perspectives on Terrorism
This comprehensive materialist study of Hezbollah, Lebanon's Party of God, offers knowledge and insightful analysis ... an enjoyable read for both students and scholars of the Middle East and for the general reader' -- Arab Studies Quarterly
