Footnotes in Gaza: A Graphic Novel by Joe Sacco
Jonathan Randal has spent a lifetime as a foreign correspondent, covering conflicts, wars, and upheavals around the globe. This book describes the forceful and bloody attempt by Lebanon's extreme-right Christian warlords--backed by international allies--to keep for the Christians the privileged position they had long enjoyed in the country's politics. The attempt failed. But the events it set in motion continue to reverberate to this day, inside Lebanon and far beyond. Randal has contributed an entirely new preface to this edition.
