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?”
