Religion and Hezbollah Political Ideology and Legitimacy

by Mariam Farida

Part of the Routledge Studies in Middle Eastern Politics Series

Religion and Hezbollah Political Ideology and Legitimacy Synopsis

Hezbollah, or Party of God, emerged in Lebanon as an armed militia to free regions in southern Lebanon from foreign occupation and to improve the standing of Shi'ite communities. This book examines the Party's use of religion to serve multiple agendas including political pragmatism, the mobilisation of supporters, and to increase its influence as an actor in the Middle East.
