New issue of the MIT- EJMES on the Lebanon war


The summer issue of MIT-EJMES is devoted in it´s entirety to the recent Lebanon war, with the theme headline: THE SIXTH WAR
ISRAEL'S INVASION OF LEBANON

It includes articles by people like Daily star contributors Jim Quilty, Nicholas Blanford and Augustus Norton , the Middle East Civil society expert, scholar, and blogger, who´s currently living in Cairo.

It´s a 229 pages long PDF file that will keep you busy for a while!

I am also looking forward to read the rewievs on Fawaz Gerges´s The far enemy and Lisa Pollard´s Nurturing the Nation (on Egypt from 1805-1923)
