The Middle East Online is an online, full-text searchable documentary collection that provides a major overview of the political history of the Middle East in the 20th century.

Series 3: Lebanon and Syria is the latest series to be released in the unparalleled collection. The documents that make up this important series have been sourced from the British government files on Lebanon and Syria in The National Archives, UK. Lebanon and Syria have occupied the news continuously throughout the 20th and 21st centuries and have been surrounded by of upheaval and unrest. The two countries are deeply united - and divided - by a shared history; both countries were part of the former Ottoman empire until 1914 and both countries were French mandates from 1920 to 1946 (Syria). This collection offers researchers easy access to material that was previously only available in National Archives in Kew. Researchers are presented with a unique opportunity to study documents that are central to an understanding of the key issues that have influenced the history of both Lebanon and Syria.

The Middle East Online, Series 3: Lebanon and Syria is an essential research tool for Middle East studies; War and Conflict studies; Empire, Colonialism and Orientalism studies; International relations; and Christian/Muslim/Jewish studies.
