A Lost Summer

A Lost Summer

Postcards From Lebanon

Edited by Maureen Ali


9780863566868 May 2008 Paperback 82pp

About the Book

The summer 2006 conflict between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon was reflected through a variety of media in the words and images of ordinary people. Blogs proliferated, emails zapped through cyberspace and text messages punched out instant reactions around the globe.

Culled from a vast selection of personal messages, A Lost Summer reflects a range of reactions from defiance and courage, confusion and anger, to humour and hope. Together with stunning photographs that catalogue the beauty and diversity of Lebanon, as well as the destruction of war, A Lost Summer is a unique homage to a country and its people in a time of conflict.
