Lebanon 24/7 is an extraordinary portrait of a country that is both historically and culturally deeply connected to the outside world. In a series of compelling accounts, Martijn van der Kooij sketches a modern, sensual and often perplexing country. He comes into close contact with Hezbollah, dips into the nightlife of glamorous Beirut, lives a spine-tingling adventure in 'tricky' Tripoli and goes in search of a hidden synagogue. In 'Lebanon 24/7' the reader sees Lebanon through foreigners eyes. The book can be used as both an introduction to Lebanon and as a travel guide. The English edition contains a brand new, up-to-date introduction and extra travel tips, including safety warnings.
