The Conscience of Lebanon a Political Biography of Etienne Sakr by Mordechai Nisan pdf free download. For a period of one year, from July 2000 through July 2001 I conducted numerous interviews and conversations with Etienne Sakr, known by his popular nom de guerre Abu-Arz, in the course of researching his life and involvement in Lebanese national affairs.

He had made his special mark on the ideological, political and military events during the struggle for a free Lebanon, and his public role since the mid-1970s and the outbreak of the war in Lebanon was integral to the shaping of his country’s painful modern experience.
But he was, it seemed, in the background or on the margin of events; some would say he was the light in the shadows of turmoil. In Lebanon, the name of Abu-Arz was well known and his principles and exploits acquired a certain reputation, even though the names of Gemayel, Chamoun and Franjiyyeh headed the list of major Lebanese leaders.

Outside Lebanon, the name of Abu-Arz was rarely recorded or mentioned in the general and rather extensive literature and reportage on
Lebanon that covered the years 1975–90. This was so despite the fact that he had been present in the arena of political decision-making and the extensive fighting in Beirut and beyond. But being almost unknown outside Lebanon, and often defamed by opponents, rivals and enemies within Lebanon, though loved and admired by others, made Etienne Sakr a particularly intriguing subject of inquiry.

His fascinating personal story set within the context of the national political narrative of Lebanon offered a portrait of the man and the times that assumed the proportions of a document of particular historical value. First impressions of Abu-Arz revealed a man of charm and polish, intelligence and political acumen, amicability and generosity. Talking with AbuArz disclosed a coherent philosophy on Lebanon and an insider’s testimony on the internal machinations of its political councils.

He was at one and the same time a participant in history and a witness to its evolution. A man of culture and sophistication, profoundly Lebanese in identity and worldly in knowledge, Etienne Sakr was most cooperative in giving me access to his world-view and personal history. Abu-Arz became a window through which I could unearth the complexity of Lebanon through the prism of his own insight and familiarity with his country
