By Murilo Meihy

Um país pequeno e distante abriga um povo longe de ser desconhecido pelos brasileiros: os libaneses imigraram em peso para cá e trouxeram seus costumes e sua cultura. Este livro, escrito pelo historiador descendente de libaneses Murilo Meihy, mostra características, discute estereótipos e traz esse povo alegre e sofrido ainda mais perto dos brasileiros. Quem são e como vivem os libaneses? Um simples passeio pelas ruas das suas grandes cidades revela que o Líbano é uma encruzilhada cultural onde os clichês mais clássicos sobre a relação entre Oriente e Ocidente se dissolvem. As camisas de marcas famosas do Ocidente, os penteados ousados que mais parecem esculturas modernistas e as maquiagens pesadas são vistos lado a lado com véus islâmicos e correntes de ouro com pingentes em formato de cruz. Recheado de bom humor, relatos cotidianos e um landscape histórico, além de mapas e fotos, o texto mostra as raízes milenares do país, os anos de paz e de guerras, a geografia e a economia, a luta das mulheres e a diáspora.
