Product Description


`.. this is a penetrating analysis of the `two greatest disasters
in modern British history''
-- Good Book Guide

`In a new and convincingly argued book, Martin Woollacott traces a
direct line from the Suez disaster to the United States' 2003 interventions
in Iraq and the related effects on US and British foreign policy and on the
situation in the Middle East.'
- Sir Brian Urquhart

well researched argument showing how the policies of the Western powers since Suez have contributed to the position we find ourselves in today. The last chapter written in 2006 is almost prophetic as it anticipates future developments. The whole book displays an amazing understanding of the Middle East written by someone who has spent much time reporting various conflicts in that region and should be read by those seeking to understand the situation today.
