Editorial Reviews

Review

IMPRESSIVE. METICULOUS. Black's impressive analysis, which included looking at more than 50,000 original documents and hundreds of scholarly books and articles ... explains why the West's record in the region so complicates nation-building there today. Many readers may find the breadth of analysis too ambitious. --Richard A. Clarke, Washington Post Book World

POWERFUL. EVOCATIVE. TAUT. Edwin Black s powerful new study --is solid and evocative throughout. For those interested in business history, his study of the relationship between commercial and political interests, especially the company that eventually became British Petroleum, is well worth the price of admission. There s also ample material to draw from to consider the future path of Iraq ... Black is committed, if not obsessed, with hyper-intensive research and documentation. His books are copiously footnoted and referenced. Given the seriousness and scope of the subjects, this is an absolute necessity. --Richard Pachter, Miami Herald

FASCINATING HISTORY. What a fascinating history ... Black tries to show that the reason so much attention has been paid to Iraq, especially in the modern era, is its oil. He does so fairly convincingly. --Adam Daifallah, Montreal Gazette
