Chapter Summary

This chapter proposes the two problems contended by the author: First, the problem of having to describe the attitude of the Lebanese Arab nationalists throughout the French mandatory period? specifically the fact that for years the Arab nationalists of Lebanon considered themselves ?Syrian? rather than ?Lebanese? nationals, aside from often being referred to simply as ?Lebanese Muslims.? In dealing with the first problem, the author aims to identify the attitudes of the Lebanese Arab nationalists separately from the positions adopted by the Arab nationalists at the regional level, or jointly with the Syrian Arab nationalists, or by the Islamic community in Lebanon. The second problem pertains to having to identify the attitude toward consociational democracy during the period between the two world wars, though this concept was articulated, refined, and applied to Lebanon during the second half of the twentieth century.

Keywords: consociational democracy; French mandatory period; Islamic community; Lebanese Arab nationalists; Syrian Arab nationalists
