About the Author

George McGovern, the Democratic Party's nominee for president in 1972, served in the House of Representatives from 1957 to 1961 and in the Senate for eighteen years. He was the president of the Middle East Policy Council in Washington, D.C., for six years and then served as ambassador to the UN Agencies on Food and Agriculture in Rome under President Clinton. He holds the Distinguished Flying Cross for service as a bomber pilot in World War II and the Presidential Medal of Freedom for humanitarian service.

William R. Polk, the author of Understanding Iraq, taught at Harvard until becoming the member of the State Department's Policy Planning Council responsible for the Middle East in 1961. He served as head of the interdepartmental task force on the Algerian war and was a member of the crisis management subcommittee during the Cuban missile crisis. After leaving government, he became professor of history at the University of Chicago and president of the Adlai Stevenson Institute of International Affairs.

An excellent book with many twist and turns. You'll end up in a really tight spot after reading this compelling and attention grabbing, must act now book!

Besides providing extremely important information about Iraq and the American occupation of Iraq, this book proposes an American withdrawal from Iraq based on our highest American ideals -- treating the Iraqi people as we would want to be treated in similar circumstances. With information and logic, the authors argue well that America and Iraq will be better off because of our withdrawal from Iraq. I'm giving copies of this book to my representatives in Washington, and urging them to help pass this life-saving plan.
