Lebanon in PicturesBook - 2005
Lebanon differs from most Middle Eastern nations in that it has a large Christian population. Commercial trade has always been the economic strength of this highly intellectual people. Prior to its recent, destructive civil war, Lebanon was considered the commercial, intellectual, and financial center of the middle east. the Lebanese are currently striving to achieve unity and stability, and when they succeed, the country will be able to return to its traditional role as the business crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa.
