Agriculture at AUB: A Century of Progress

​In this informative book, Dean Daghir presents a well-documented history of agricultural education at AUB from the early part of the twentieth century to the current day. This account is preceded by an introductory chapter on the history of agriculture in the Levant, widely considered to be one of the areas where human beings first transformed from hunter-gatherers to farmers. This book is a rich testimony to the contributions of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences (FAFS) and its graduates toward development in the Middle East region. The book will be of interest not only to former and current FAFS students, faculty, and staff members, but also to all those interested in AUB and its growth over the years.

An American Nurse Amidst Chaos

​​Eighteen-year-old Gladys Mouro left her home in New Hampshire for the American University of Beirut, where she soon became a first-rate registered nurse. But in her pursuit of adventure, Lebanon gave her more than she had ever bargained for. Less than a year after her arrival, Lebanon's civil conflict erupted and swept her into fifteen years of dealing with the tragic human consequences of war in an understaffed and unprotected hospital. This book is a personal record of living and working in a war-torn land; it is also a story of the noble survival of an institution – the American University of Beirut Medical Center and the courageous people who, against all odds, kept it alive and functioning throughout the Lebanese Civil War.

Byzantium in Early Islamic Syria

This publication contains the proceedings of a 2007 conference organized by the Center for Arab and Middle East Studies (CAMES) at the American University of Beirut and the Center for Antiochene Studies at the University of Balamand. It is divided into two parts comprising two respective chronological eras, reflecting the intention of the conference to pursue a dual and comparative focus with the hope of throwing fresh light on both eras – the early Islamic period, from the Islamic conquests of Syria until the fall of the Umayyad dynasty (632–750), and the period of Byzantine reconquest of Syria (969–1084).​​
