Reflects upon the origins of Lebanese independence movements in the
nineteenth century, with particular emphasis on the Maronite
Christian clergy's attempt to free the Lebanese province from
Ottoman rule in 1841 and 1845, and the subsequent Turkish and Druze
response in 1860. The author argues that although unsuccessful, the
Maronite struggle for independence proved a prelude to Arab
nationalism clearly identified by its anti-Ottoman content,
concluding that the numerous animosities resulting from this early
prototype of Arab nationalism can still be delineated in the recent
Lebanese Civil War.
