Summary "On New Year's Day, in 1962, the Lebanese people woke to the news that a 'right wing' coup against their government had been put down by the army and security forces with the loss of only five lives and a small number of wounded." "This book examines the ideological, political, and social underpinnings of the attempted coup, its causes, motives, consequences, and background. The author analyses the role of the Syrian Socialist Nationalist Party, the history of the army in Lebanon and its role in Lebanese politics, and the impact of the coup on Lebanese political life." "Lebanon provides a unique insight into the mechanisms of military coups in the Arab world and will be of interest to students and researchers of the history and politics of the Middle East."--Jacket.
