The biggest book to cover the country (5 kilos!) and the first one to show that the place has recovered in the 20 years since the civil war, to be Switzerland of the Middle East again. New York Times destination of the year in 2009, and this book shows why. From the nightclubs and museums of Beirut to the Bedouin grape harvesters in the Bekaa - Milligan has done it again! (I know him, so am a bit biased).
Robert Fisk - The Independent on Sunday
" a monumental new book...Max Milligan's imperishable photographs - he
has sought out things that I have either never seen or have forgotten
in the 34 years I have lived here...wonderful...there are some great
memories for me here".
The Daily Telegraph
"Max Milligan depicts the generous and colourful Lebanon so few
outside the Middle East see...It's not so much a book to be stashed on
a shelf, as a beautifully bound work of art"

A really lovely book, giving a feel of the country in my experience having spent two short holidays there. I have bought the book for my husband for his birthday, (yet to come) and I hope he will feel the same!, he having spent two prolonged periods working there in the late 1960's and again in tha mid 90's.
