Antun Sa'adeh's life was a unique blend of dedicated perpetual struggle, righteous idealism, and theoretical pragmatism. A nationalist thinker who lived from 1904 to 1949, he was one of the major intellectual figures of modern Syria. He was not simply an outspoken figure on the political stage, but he attempted the revolutionary treatment of paramount social and economic ills. His well-known publications have had a broad influence on the politico-intellectual movement in Syria and throughout the Arab World. This book is a collection of scholarly articles by leading authorities on Antun Sa'adeh's thought. The book covers various aspects of his thought and not just his political views. It provides a synopsis of the work done hitherto in the field, discusses the important studies published over the past fifty years, including the most up-to-date work, and at the same time identifies the main problems that have arisen in Arabic as well as English secondary sources. Thus, it provides on the one hand a reference work summarizing previous research in the field, and at the same time it is an original work of synthesis and new interpretations.

A collection of essays that aim to add a badly needed face-lift on the rather ugly, Fascistic, rabid anti-Lebanese, Judeo-phobic, anti-modernistic, anti-Democratic but 'secular' thought of Antun Saadee. The man, was executed for high treason having led a failed coup (his followers refer to that adventure as the great 'Renaissance'). Nowhere does one see a liberal tradition of Human rights, of independence, sovereignty, and the rights of man in this rather revisionist book. Man is nothing but a 'social potentiality' just like he would be under any totalitarian and Fascistic (ear Eastern in this case) tradition. Do not waste your time and money. The editor and the many SSNP pseudo-intellectuals have always been nothing but a frustrated bunch. Read instead Zawya's book on the ideological analysis of the SSNP (a Harvard monograph). This book deserves a minus 10. It is a failed attempt at exonerating the Fascistic ideology of the Guru of Pan Syrianism.

I have read only a few pages of this book. I think that was enough.

Beshara, who is clearly unsympathetic to zionism (an euphemism!), uses zionist sources to base some of his claims. Hard to believe but true. This indicates the level of scholarship.

In any case, there is not so much meat in Sa'adeh's thoughts so... if you add to this an author bent on writing a panegyric eulogy :-), the book can hardly be interesting. When you reach page 3 you have understood that Beshara's starting point is that Sa'adeh is a hero and a great thinker....

Sa'adeh was a controversial figure. Not sure whether he was antisemitic or simply antizionist but he clearly left a disastrous antisemitic legacy. He loved behaving like a fascistic leader but was, in private, quite a nice guy. He loved the geographical zone that includes Lebanon but hated the lebanese state. He invented the delirious idea that Cyprus belongs to Syria but, fundamentally, his idea of a larger Syria has nothing inherently wrong (the idea of having a larger Syria that included Lebanon was favored by the majority of Christians of the region (before 1920). Christians ! But Not maronites :-)

Sa'adeh may deserve a short book that would provide a critical look at him. But Beshara's book is a clear miss.

This is a wonderful collection of Saadeh's writings. Another reviewer referred to Saadeh as "Lebanese hating". Saadeh was Lebanese and he loved Lebanon and greater Syria. He recognized very early in his life the dangers of colonialism in the Middle East following the first World War. He devoted his life to developing his social philosophy that envisioned a way for the diverse religious groups in the area to live in peace and to flourish. He spoke against the Zionist movement, not because he hated Jews but because he saw the designs Zionism had on Palestine and spoke time and time again about the need to unite against colonialism and Zionism. He was a disciplined, smart, thoughtful, kind man. By all accounts he spoke eloquently and was convincing. Today as I see what is happening in our homeland, I pray for another Saadeh, I pray for people with his conviction in looking for the many things that unite us, rather than focusing on the few things that divide us.
If you want to know the man, this is a good place to start.

I wish these sick Zionists would shut their mouths. This book is brilliant; and everyone should know that Zionists are far worse than the Nazis in Germany ever were.
