This book is a collection of essays that were originally presented at a conference at the Lebanese American University in late May 2007, entitled “Politics, Culture and the Lebanese Diaspora.” It looks at various facets of the Lebanese Diaspora and examines the politics and culture of Lebanese migrants and their descendants in different parts of the world while detailing the communal, national and transnational elements of these practices and exploring the changing characteristics of politics and culture in respect to migration, Diaspora and globalization. The essays raise questions about the (in)compatible and interpenetrating relationships between these dynamics, and analyze processes of identity formation as cultural manifestations of migratory politics. The book is divided into three main sections. The first section deals with issues of identity and multiculturalism among Lebanese emigrants, concluding that identities are continuously molded and negotiated in the diaspora. It examines the formation of identities among second and third-generation migrants, and the changing conceptions of the meaning of roots and homelands. The second section deals with politics and activism in the Diaspora. It looks at how diasporas relate to the political processes in their homelands during post-conflict resolution and explores the role of Lebanese migrants abroad in the process of peace-building back home. The third part deals with the Diaspora in literature and media through the assessment of key writings on the explorations of self of the Lebanese abroad, drawing on how symbols of identification and conventions of representation become sites of conflict over time. The wide variety of perspectives presented in these papers invite us to challenge the notion of a fixed, bounded, and rigid homeland and identity, and move towards one that is more nomadic and fluid. They call us to pay attention to the symbols used in the cultural construction of both homelands and identities in the country of immigration and to think of the complex ways in which transnational politics affect the homeland and are in turn affected by it.

In this evocative new book, Nada Saleh, a trained nutritionist and talented cook, presents 200 imaginative recipes from her native Lebanon. Throughout she draws upon her many happy memories of a vibrant and sun-baked land - the family occasions when they ate in the shade of the poplar trees, enjoying mezze (traditional appetisers), meshwi (grilled meat) and locally grown fresh fruits of the season alongside delicate sweet dishes, washed down with Turkish coffee. From tempting vegetable and salad dishes like Yoghurt and Spinach Salad, via delicate Cod with Tahini to enticing Upside Down Aubergines, Stuffed Meat Roast and mouthwatering Walnut, Pistachio and Date Pastries and Molasses with Sesame Cream and Fig Jam, this charming book is a joy to cook from and is suffused with warmth and love for a distant land that, even in adversity, beguiles and inspires.

This book is about a series of murders which recently occurred at the United States Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon. The manner of death was caused by numerous knife-like cuts where the wounded victims were left on the Embassy streets, sidewalks and parking lots to bleed-out until they were dead. The local forces were unable to solve these murder mysteries and the honorable Ambassador, Madam Margaret Sullivan, had no recourse except to seek outside assistance from the US Army at NATO Headquarters in Europe. In exchange for a large grant from the US military, Nicolas and his investigative team were very happy to offer their services in this new challenge from and for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. It was also the best method by which Haig could afford to pay for their Gulfstream G-550 jet liner.
