The Islamic revolutionary movement Hezbollah has become most powerful source of radical militancy in the Middle East, more dangerous to its enemies than Hamas or even al Qaeda. It has forged a mass following and global appeal. Twice Hezbollah has defeated Israel in conventional wars, and its leader has become the most popular man in the Arab world. This book, blending first- person narrative with thoughtful exposition, offers the first close look at the men and women whose fervor has made Lebanon's Party of God the gold standard for violent movements across the region and the world. This book will be required reading for anyone who wishes to fully understand Hezbollah's grave threat to Israel and the West.

Through deep and vivid portraits of men and women who do Hezbollah's grassroots work - on the battlefields, in politics, in nightclubs and scout troops - Cambanis puts a human face on the movement that has ushered in a militant renaissance and inspired fighters in Gaza, the West Bank, Egypt, Iraq and beyond.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Depressingly excellent... Lays out the near-brilliant way in which Hezbollah manages to be both the party of the downtrodden and the puppet of two of the area's most retrograde dictatorships. Cambanis shows how the trick is pulled."-Christopher Hitchens, Slate, author of Hitch-22 and God Is Not Great
"An indispensable guide to understanding the region's most formidable extra-state actor. Cambanis skillfully pinpoints the reasons for Hezbollah's political success. . . . In prose that is often eloquent yet earthy, indicative of scholarly erudition as well as a storyteller's flair for capturing the complexities of human psychology, Cambanis describes the seemingly contradictory impulses he discovers."
-The Christian Science Monitor
