Not only the authors' selection of speeches is questionable, they have seemingly acquired approval for the script of this book form a Hezbollah representative, which makes of this Hezbollah-approved book sort of the official record of Nasrallah's speeches.
But to be fair, the most interesting part in the book is a certain interview with Nasrallah in which the man talks about his personal background and upbringing albeit in his own words.
Researchers might want to have this archive book on their bookshelves. However, they should expect the work to be incomplete due to its unjustifiable process of selectivity.
The book includes speeches, television and newspaper interviews, etc dating back to the mid-1980s. Nasrallah's words provide an incredible insight into his thoughts and motives and those of his resistance/terrorist movement (depending on your views).
I now have a greater understanding of Hizballah's interaction in Lebanon's domestic politics and its views toward Israel. The book is not a particularly easy read because it's more than 400 pages of speeches (doesn't "flow" like a novel). However, it is a great book that gives unfiltered information. This is NOT a beginner's book, as the editor's footnoted explanations are insufficient to educate a beginner. This is for the intermediate-to-serious student of Lebanon, the Arab-Israeli relationship, and Hizballah.
If you belong to that final category and want direct/unfiltered/unbiased information, I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
