Summary "Drawing from unpublished sources, as well as from John Cooley's personal encounters with principal players such as David Ben-Gurion, the Shah of Iran, Anwar al-Sadat, King Hussein of Jordan, and Saddam Hussein himself, this book gives a uniquely valuable perspective on the complex history of Iraq and why it continues to be at the heart of world affairs."--Jacket.
