Presentation

Lebanese political scientist and journalist Kim Ghattas worked at the BBC in Washington DC for many years and has collaborated with major English-language press publications, most notably The Atlantic at present. She has published two outstanding books that have sadly yet to be translated into French: The Secretary: A Journey with Hillary Clinton from Beirut to the Heart of American Power and Black Wave: Saudi Arabia, Iran, and the Forty-Year Rivalry That Unraveled Culture, Religion and collective Memory in the Middle-East. In the latter, she writes above all about how Lebanon occupied a strategic position in the conflicts that have left their mark on the entire Middle East since 1979, the year of the Iranian Revolution,  the Grand Mosque seizure in Mecca by Sunni fundamentalists, and the Soviet Union's invasion of Afghanistan.

In this interview, Kim Ghattas comments on this chapter of history and Lebanon's role in it, along with all of the external forces that have constantly weighed down on this small country at the center of conflicts with major geopolitical implications.
