Crisis in Lebanon


In this study, I have followed the transliteration system used by the Middle East Journal. However, names of individuals and place names in direct quotes have been left as they appeared in the original texts and in the two U.N. maps at the back of the book.

While writing this book, I visited Lebanon three times in 1959 and 1960. Here, I want to express my gratitude and appreciation to the many Lebanese who kindly helped me with information, views and documentary material. They are too numerous to mention by name.

Thanks are also due to the Middle East Institute. For more than three years it has placed its various services and facilities at my disposal, thus enabling me to do research on this as well as other studies. I especially wish to thank Miss Kathleen Brown of the Institute for her patience and many hours of work in proofreading the manuscript and compiling the index.

Many others have helped in a number of ways, but I am alone responsible for all statements and conclusions made in this book.

Washington, D. C.
