A magnificent reckoning with the extraordinary changes engulfing the Middle East, by Robin Wright, one of our greatest reporters on the region.

The Barnes & Noble Review

One of the presumed justifications for the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, and the subsequent occupation, was to bring democracy and political stability to the entire Middle East. As Robin Wright, who has covered the Middle East for over 30 years for The Washington Post, makes wonderfully clear in this important, highly illuminating, and provocative book, the goals of regional democracy and stability may be mutually exclusive.
