Also, She had a strong, deep relationship, as she claimed, with the Lebanese "Christian" Forces Leader and Former President Bachir Gemayel.

by Barbara Newman with Barbara Rogan This is Newman, a tough American TV producer, talking about Bashir Gemayel, a risin. Her book, the story of her romance with Gemayel and her investigation into his death, at times comes awfully close to Danielle Steel prose ( beneath his robe his body was heavily muscled ). But it is not to be scorned. Her story combines romance, adventure and investigative reporting. What’s more, it’s a primer on recent Middle Eastern politics and warfare. Newman, then 36, Jewish, twice divorced and, she says, nobody’s fool, went to Lebanon in 1980 to do a piece on terrorism for ABC’s 20/20. There she met the charismatic Gemayel, then 32 and married.

Barbara Jane Newman is an American medievalist, literary critic, religious historian, and author. She is Professor of English and Religion, and John Evans Professor of Latin, at Northwestern University. Newman was elected in 2017 to the American Philosophical Society. Newman was raised near Chicago, Illinois. After an undergraduate education at Oberlin College and graduate work at the University of Chicago, she began her scholarly career with a 1981 dissertation at Yale on Hildegard of Bingen.

In a time where people were afraid to tell the truth, Barbara came and did it. She was not afraid of telling the truth.

Barbara made a promise to tell the truth about Bashir Gemayel, about his short presidency, and most of all, about his realistic plans for a stabilized Lebanese government. She captured his vision and expresses it well - his ideas of defeating the old system and bringing a democratic system of government into existance that combined Muslim and Christian interests and refocused them into a united Lebanese idealism. Nothing but excellent. Published by Thriftbooks

First of all, i beg your pardon for my bad english.
I bought this book here in January 2 and today i finally say that i liked it very much!
It is accurate, have all the ingredients of a good book for me, and it displays a balanced portrait of a complex man that, with all his fragilities, was very important to Lebanon recent history.
Just my opinion, because i came from a country with a less turmoiled history but with very deep problems, Portugal.

If you have ever lived in the Middle East and still need a clear understanding of the situation in Lebanon, read this book! While there is a personal "romance" side to the book, it gives great detail and explanation to the confusing state of affairs in Lebanon - having lived there for 17 years during the time frame of the events in this book, I found myself understanding the turmoil, seeing things in a clearer picture, and longing to return to this once Paris of the Middle East. Barbara made a promise to tell the truth about Bashir Gemayel, about his short presidency, and most of all, about his realistic plans for a stabilized Lebanese government. She captured his vision and expresses it well - his ideas of defeating the old system and bringing a democratic system of government into existance that combined Muslim and Christian interests and refocused them into a united Lebanese idealism.

This book is simply one few books that actually captures the war from the free side of Beirut. Unlike Robert Fisk's book, that is completely biased depiction of the war spinning everything on the anti-palestinian movement of the time, and to be more specific the christians of the free areas. This book shows what the Lebanese had to go through to maintain their survival in Lebanon and not leave it to be annexed by the Palestinians who somehow fought a battle in the wrong direction. Instead of fighting Israel they ended up fighting the Lebanese. Western reporters including fisk were obviously fooled by everything was going on. Fisk's book was accurate in depicting the details of the war, but was not accurate at all in depicting the political and nationalistic side of the war.

Barbara Newman reveals a whole new side of the war fought by the Lebanese. How they chose to fight each other at times instead of the real enemy. How Bachir Gemayel was betrayed by his own men, his own rabid dogs to be more specific. It is a great book that gives one of the greatest political leaders Lebanon was to see , a humanist side, one of the sides that few people knew, and certainly not the evil savage picture depicted by Al-Jazeer's account of the war, by Fisk and many western reporters who barely mingled with the Free Lebanese politicians.

This book is rather a well-written "fiction". It describes the involvement of Barbara Newman in Middle Eastern politics when she was doing a segment for 20/20 in the early 1980's. The book describes her experiences during the Beirut civil war. Her love affair with the commander-in-chief of the Lebanese christian forces, Beshir Gemayel, ended with the latter's assassination three weeks after being elected Lebanese president

When I started reading this book, I thought it was just another fairy tale written by a reporter who was seeking fame and fortune. I was wrong. the events in this book are acurate, and the story in all is very intense. I congradulate miss Neman for her honesty and courage. I would love to meet and share some stories with her one day since I grew up in the Covenant's home town... No matter what was said about Shiek Basshir, and no matter what he had done, HE WAS TRULY THE ONLY HOPE LEBANON HAD..

Imagine that a foreigner to Lebanon knows more about it than the Lebanese themselves. It's a great history book, and one would have to read it to really know what was happening in Lebanon.
