Timely and informative
This is a readable, informative and timely account of the history of what became the state of Iraq in the 1920's. Particularly helpful to the layperson who wants to understand both the religious and governmental background of the area. Very balanced in her approach.Was this review helpful?

Go to War? Not to go to War? This will help you decide.
Reading this book, I felt like I was watching what was happening in Iraq. I highly recommend it. You are there when Saddan's cousin, drops the canisters of deadly gas on the Kurds. Sandra Mackey is an authority on the Middle East and I look forward to reading all her other books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
