Hizbullah's documents : from the 1985 Open Letter to the 2009 Manifesto

Joseph Alagha

There are hardly any reliable publications in English that include Hizbullah's primary documents, starting with the party's 1985 Open Letter; passing through its eight clandestine conclaves from 1989 to 2009; to all of its legislative and municipal election programs from 1992 to 2010; including all the agreements, understandings, and pacts the party has ratified over the years; and ending with its 2009 Political Manifesto. The dearth of these documents and the distortions that resulted from inaccurate translations prompted the author to embark on the task of producing a reliable reference work that rectifies the misrepresentations resulting from these translations, especially when these might negatively impact academics and policy makers alike. Through privileged access to the party, the author was able to compile these original primary documents in Arabic. He has dedicated his efforts to translate these in a thorough, comprehensive, and meticulous way, while offering adequate footnoting, commentary and relevant background information in order to draw attention to Hizbullah's metamorphosis in the past decade. Apart from the translations, the detailed introductory chapter maps these changes by analytically comparing the Open Letter with the 2009 Manifesto.
