Extremely thorough detailing of the party's class composition and program
and what that has meant for labor mobilizing and organizing:

After reading, order the book, which also examines other aspects of the
party's politics and practice.

The chapter on Hezbollah's military policies is very useful for
understanding its counterrevolutionary role in Syria. But of course that
role is intimately integrated with the party's overall bankruptcy, as shown
in the Jacobin article (and in the book). One could even say that
Hezbollah's fight against independent labor politics was key in leaving the
region subject to dominance by various bourgeois - including Islamist -
forces.
