Khashan Hammers Norton, Too
by Jonathan Schanzer • May 30, 2008 at 4:43 pm
Last year, I wrote a scathing review of Augustus Richard Norton's book, Hezbollah. Hilal Khashan from the American University of Beirut agrees with me.
Writing in the latest Middle East Quarterly
, Khashan notes that Norton's book "fails miserably. Norton summarily dismisses Hezbollah's terrorist credentials... and...ignores the organic linkage between Hezbollah and Iran's Islamic Republic."
Khashan concludes: "Norton's book is the literary equivalent of antifreeze laced Chinese toothpaste. Has the Princeton press abandoned its review process?"
