    • I am soooooo surprised by the actions and reactions of so many past leaders mentioned in this book. This book is a real eye opener for sure!! After you have read the book you get a good sense of why some Muslims really hate us.This book should be required reading for young people in high school. So much can be learned about the European and American occupancy, financing, arming, killings, and political influencing of Iraq as well as other Middle Eastern nations. Let’s not forget about how our [...]

    • At times enthralling, others too thick to even wade through, it is above all informative about an area every single American (or anyone else, for that matter) should be knowledgeable about. The book presents valuble information, but the method through which it conveys that message is more times than not is a tangled web of facts. Like a fly caught in a spider's web, I felt like a poor insect trapped in a world of spinning names, dates, memos, etc. I couldn't make heads or tails out of most of th [...]

    • Well documented and researched book. Clearly the author doesn't like George H W Bush or George W. Bush. It's still a good history book however I could've done with less political bias. The book is written as a historical account however with a clear political message of the left. Some of what the author predicted was wrong. I wouldn't buy it and am glad the library had it.

    • A real eye opener that reads like a fascinating history novel. They just don't teach you these behind-the-scenes aspects of history in school. If you want to be able to hold any intelligent opinion on the Iraq issue, and you haven't actually lived through the era, paying close attention to politics, this is a must-read.

    • Not what I would consider a gripping book from a literary standpoint (but not terribly written either). VERY informative about the impact that the U.S. and Britain had on Iraq over the past 100 years. Its frightening to see how much we could have avoided/we set in motion.

    • Wow, what a contrast to Michael Oren's book, Power, Faith,and Fantasy or now as I'd like to call it Mid East lite. I enjoyed both books and maybe there is a more complete understanding of Iraq somewhere in the middle.

    • we are dicks to iraq :(

    • Was well researched but very repetitive and at the end a bit boringOtherwise good read if want to know what America stands for in politics

    • Difficult for me to review--since I wrote itbut invite others to give a look

    • Got through the early history of British failures and the compromises that led to the "presentable young man" being put in place.

    • Pity the small country awash in oil wealth. The great power interests have fought to gain control of its resources since WWII.
