The Lebanon is the product of two years spent driving to every part of Lebanon, photographing the wealth of variety in landscape, culture, wildlife and archaeology. Twenty years since the civil war ended,it is a country returned to its glorious past as Switzerland of the Middle East, named as The New York Times destination of the year in 2009.

Max Milligan's fourth book takes in all periods of history: The Phoenician port of Byblos where the alphabet was created, Adonis and Aphrodite's resting place, and Beirut which was named after their child, with its stunning restaurants and nightclubs. Tyre and Sidon, and Qana, site of Jesus's water into wine miracles.

From the ski resorts of Faqra and Faraya to the Mediterranean beaches an hour's drive below, his painterly eye has framed the first ever photograph of a Lebanese wild wolf, dawn on the last day of the wine harvest in the Bekaa Valley, Bishops preparing behind the altar on Christmas Day, Sunni, Shia and Druze clerics sharing chocolates at Eid al Adha, Teenage skateboarders in Hamra, belly dancers on the bar at B.O 18 nightclub, markets, museums, souks and every kind of home from one with a Million Euro Baccarat chanderlier to rustic Bedouin tents.

This is a celebration of a country where seventeen religious and political factions share a land and opened their doors to an artist who promised to do justice to their national pride.

40 x 32 centimetres, 296 pages and weighing 5 kilos, and as Amazon.com has said of his previous work - '"The book in itself is a work of Art'
