Michael J. Totten has just published The Road to Fatima Gate: The Beirut Spring, the Rise of Hezbollah, and the Iranian War Against Israel. From Lee Smith's blurb, on the back of the book:

Here is the book we've been waiting almost a decade for: a firsthand account, curious, subtle, clear-eyed and thus at turns critical and sympathetic, from the front lines of the Middle East where the war between obscurantism and freedom cannot help but impact U.S. interests, allies, and citizens here at home -- a narrative told by America's premier reporter of the Arab states, from Iraq to Lebanon.
