Praise For A Privilege to Die: Inside Hezbollah's Legions and Their Endless War Against Israel…
“Depressingly excellent… Lays out the near-brilliant way in which Hezbollah manages to be both the party of the downtrodden and the puppet of two of the area’s most retrograde dictatorships. Cambanis shows how the trick is pulled.”—Christopher Hitchens, Slate, author of Hitch-22 and God Is Not Great
“An indispensable guide to understanding the region’s most formidable extra-state actor. Cambanis skillfully pinpoints the reasons for Hezbollah’s political success. . . . In prose that is often eloquent yet earthy, indicative of scholarly erudition as well as a storyteller’s flair for capturing the complexities of human psychology, Cambanis describes the seemingly contradictory impulses he discovers.”
