ABSTRACT
This article presents information about the book "Lessons of the Lebanon the Economics of War and Development," by Samir Makdisi. The case of Lebanon offers a striking illustration of these interlocking influences on projects of national economic development. The persistently sectarian nature of the country's political institutions, the relatively poor quality of governance, the impact of the Arab-Israeli conflict and the major civil war that engulfed the country from 1975 to 1990, together define not only the context in which the achievements and failures of Lebanese development must be assessed, but also the continuing challenges that it must face in the era of globalization.
