Out in a few days: my new book "War Diary: Lebanon 2006" from Just World Books

What was it like to live in Beirut during the Israel-Lebanon war of 2006? During that war, the Israeli military killed 1,200 Lebanese citizens-- most of them civilians-- and destroyed a large proportion of the country's infrastructure: power plants, factories, vital bridges, and the whole, densely populated area of southern Beirut known as the "Dahiyeh". (43 Israeli civilians and 121 Israeli military were also killed in the war.) Lebanese agronomy professor and social activist Rami Zurayk spent the whole war in Beirut with his family. War Diary: Lebanon 2006 is his record of the 33-day-long onslaught, published by Just World World Books as a special short e-book on the fifth anniversary of the war.
