  • - Conspiracy in Jerusalem
    af Salibi Kamal Salibi
    76,95 kr.

    This book is an extraordinary and provocative examination of one of history's great unsolved mysteries: who, or what, was Jesus? The Gospels provide no direct answers and both the life of Jesus as it has been recorded for us and the teachings and activities of the Apostles are surrounded by baffling contradictions and inconsistencies. Salibi here invites the reader to join him on a voyage of historical discovery to determine the true identity of the founder of Christianity. Where did Jesus really come from? Why do the Gospels pass over the greater part of his life? What of the principle founders of the Christian Church, St Peter and St Paul? What did Paul discover in Arabia? No reader can fail to be carried along by the tantalising search for clues as Salibi attempts to unravel history's best-kept secret the true identity of Jesus.

  • - The History of Lebanon Reconsidered
    af Salibi Kamal Salibi
    170,95 kr.

    Today Lebanon is one of the world's most divided countries - if it remains a country at all. But paradoxically the faction-ridden Lebanese, both Christians and Muslims, have never shown a keener consciousness of common identity. How can this be? In this outstanding book a famous Lebanese historian examines in the light of modern scholarship the historical myths on which his country's warring communities have based their conflicting visions of the Lebanese nation.The Lebanese have always lacked a common vision of their past. From the beginning Muslims and Christians have disagreed fundamentally over their country's historical legitimacy: Christians on the whole have affirmed it, Muslims have tended to emphasise Lebanon's plave in a broader Arab history. Both groups have used nationalist ideas in a destructive game which at a deeper level involves archaic loyalties and tribal rivalries. But Lebanon cannot afford these conflicting visions if it is to develop and maintain a sense of political community.In the course of his extremely lively exposition, Salibi offers a major reinterpretation of Lebanese history, and provides remarkable insights into the synamic of Lebanon's recent conflict. He also gives a masterly account of how the imagines communities which underlie modern antionalism are created.This is not only an illuminating woek on one of the most intractable problems of the Middle East, but a brilliantly conceived and elegantluy written cast study of the phenomenon of nationalism. It will appeal as much to political scientists as to those seeking to understans the conflict in Lebanon today.
