Though the book was written before the outbreak of violence in Syria—and thus prior to Hezbollah’s demise as the hero of the Arabs—it provides important insight into the paradox of Hezbollah’s ideology and the crux of the party’s current predicament… [The] book lays the ground for understanding Hezbollah’s fall from Arab grace and current events in the Levant.—Samuel Helfont, The New Republic online

It serves well as a handbook to the Hezbollah movement… The inclusion of fascinating historical documents and useful reference information make the book helpful for students seeking to understand the movement.—P. Rowe, Choice
