Summary
"Most policymakers in the United States and Israel have it wrong. Hezbollah isn't a simple terrorist organisation - nor is it likely to disappear soon." "The most accessible, informed, and balanced analysis of the group yet written, Hezbollah is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the Middle East."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
A guide to understanding the complexities and paradoxes of a group that remains entrenched at the heart of Middle East politics describes how Hezbollah developed, how it has evolved, and what direction it may take in the future
