Product description


"The picture of the last eight years that emerges is among the most coherent and accessible of any book on Iraq to date."-- "New York Times Book Review""The most detailed look available at what has happened in post-Gulf War Iraq.... Because of Patrick Cockburn's contacts in Baghdad, "Out of the Ashes" brings light to a political system that most American writing leaves shrouded in darkness." -- "Washington Post Book World"A clear, lively, well-researched narrative, which moves along at a brisk pace.... Rich in information and atmospehre."-- "The Nation""A fascinating history of the global and regional intrigues and miscues that have allowed Saddam Hussein to defiantly survive.... Among the best books yet written on the malignant enigma that is Saddam Hussein." -- "Kirkus Review"


An expose of the internal feuds in the CIA that doomed the secret operations to bring down Saddam Hussein. The authors are investigative journalists who covered the story from inside Iraq. They offer insights into the psyche of Saddam and his family, bodyguards and extended tribal family, as well as his weapons of mass destruction.
