Michael Young’s new book, The Ghosts of Martyrs Square: An Eyewitness Account of Lebanon’s Life Struggle.A mix of reportage as well as an introduction to Lebanon’s political culture, the book focuses on the turbulent period in Lebanese history stretching from the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in 2005 and the subsequent withdrawal of Syrian forces that same year, to 2009, which Young says marked Syria’s return.
