Spirit of the Phoenix: Beirut and the Story of Lebanon

Spirit of the Phoenix: Beirut and the Story of Lebanon

Published by I.B.Tauris
An extract from Tim Llewellyn's Spirit of the Phoenix:

In this lyrical journey of political and historical discovery, Llewellyn traces the signs, and tells the stories of the Druze, the Maronites and the Shia, the Sunnis, the Armenians and the Alawites. Interviewing footsoldiers and priests, refugees, warlords and gangsters, he evokes the cacophony of competing narratives, cultures and memories with which the city resounds. As Lebanon stands once more at the brink of crisis, Spirit of the Phoenix offers an introduction to the country's fractious politics and an unforgettable portrait of a people that continue to rise again and again from the ashes.

"Part travelogue, part political vignettes, part personal reminiscences, Llewellyn captures the essence of this unique and troubled country."
- David Hirst, author of The Gun and the Olive Branch
