Product Overview

Lebanese history is often associated with sectarianism and hostilitybetween religious communities, but by examining public memorials and historicalaccounts Lucia Volk finds evidence for a sustained politics of Muslim and Christianco-existence. Lebanese Muslim and Christian civilians were jointly commemorated asmartyrs for the nation after various episodes of violence in Lebanese history. Sitesof memory sponsored by Maronite, Sunni, Shiite, and Druze elites have shared thegoal of creating cross-community solidarity by honoring the joint sacrifice ofcivilians of different religious communities. This compelling and lucid studyenhances our understanding of culture and politics in the Middle East and thepolitics of memory in situations of ongoing conflict.
