Description
The problems faced by the nation of Lebanon reflect those that confront all multi-ethnic societies. In this volume, Nazih Richani examines the intricacies of Lebanese political life and provides an in-depth study of the Progressive Socialist Party (PSP), one of Lebanon's most important political parties. Using the case of the PSP, Richani explains how a party is constructed in a multi-ethnic society, how social composition influences the decisions made as well as the dynamics of a party, and examines what affects a party's development, how did and do leaders interpret and adjust to these developments, and how do these developments alter the party's proclaimed views and goals. A thoroughly researched investigation into the political anatomy of one country, Dilemmas of Democracy and Political Parties in Multi-Ethnic Societies helps to fill a lamentable gap in research on political parties in the Middle East.
