Great book, 7 Jan. 2006
This book is very interesting.
It manages to successfully combine biographical information on Saddam's life whilst also giving a historical background of Iraqi politics. It includes a variety of information from Iraqi domestic policies to foreign policies and its relation to the west. We also do get some insider information about Saddam as Aburish worked with him for a while.
Well worth a read!
