Editorial Reviews

Review

"Volk’s identification of subjacent gender and class issues in memorialization points the way to fertile ground for future scholarship.... Would memorials commemorating the contributions of women or the working-class bring into question the status quo by relativizing the power of elite males? These are not questions that Memorials and Martyrs foregrounds but the book makes it much easier and more plausible to ask them. The next time somebody asks what good scholarship can do for civil society, I’ll try to remember this." —Journal of Arabic Literature

(Journal of Arabic Literature)

"Volk presents a wonderful narrative of key turning points in the history of modern Lebanon.... [A] rigorous study and a pleasure to read." —H-net Reviews

(H-net Reviews)

"Compelling and compulsively readable.... Provides a fascinating historical reading of Lebanon’s contentious politics over the last century." —Laleh Khalili, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London

(Laleh Khalili, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London)
