Pity the Nation ranks among the classic accounts of war in our time, both as historical document and as an eyewitness testament to human savagery. Written by one of Britain's foremost journalists, this remarkable book combines political analysis and war reporting in an unprecedented way: it isan epic account of the Lebanon conflict by an author who has personally witnessed the carnage of Beirut for over a decade. Fisk's book recounts the details of a terrible war but it also tells a story of betrayal and illusion, of Western blindness that had led inevitably to political and militarycatastrophe. Updated and revised, Fisk's book gives us a further insight into this troubled part of the world. 'Robert Fisk is one of the outstanding reporters of this generation. As a war correpondent he is unrivalled.' Edward Mortimer, Financial Times

I was shocked at the amount of history packed into this book by a man. This detailed look a the history and culture of Lebanon provides a window to the history of the entire middle east. It's as relevant as the day it was written and the first hand personal experiences of Fisk mixed with his tedious research create a mountain of facts that seldom leave the reader questions the source of his opinions.

If you read only one book in your life ,this is it. Truthful,detailed ,full of facts and dates to support the events. Having family living in Lebanon thru those years I was sick at times reading the horrible events they went through. Mr.Fisk is a master writer and historian I recommend this book very highly. Must read

I just have started to read the book. So far it meets my expectations. A good background account on the past and present time of Lebanon and surroundings. Even though the book is a bit old already - maybe it should be updated as regards the last decade (until today, esp. concerning impacts of the Arab Spring and crisis in Syria). Anyway, I am going to use Pity the Nation as a sort of "Lonely Planet tourist/backpacking information source" for political and contemporary history of Lebanon when visiting the country.

Written from direct experience and clearly from the heart, Robert Fisk weaves a web of connections from Auschwitz to South Lebanon.
