dc.description.abstract The aim of this thesis is to provide insight onto the personal experiences that Lebanese civilians had with music during the 1975 Civil War. The research focuses on how individual Lebanese people have used music to cope with the tragedies that consumed them during the war. The experiences of the war generation have generally been impersonal and more focused on quantitative data. This study gives a new voice to civilians who have been reciting the same war story repeatedly. My project looks at the ways in which music and its distribution have personally affected those that have consumed it.
