It's really interesting and eye-popping. Writer is very selective with his vocabulary and the chapters are nicely broken down into smaller paragraph...
I think by reading the title you can tell what it talks about, no extra clarification is required, except the Iraq part, which is a little more in depth!
As Daniel Ellsberg wrote in his blurb: "This remarkable account of US and UK policy toward Iraq--from its founding as a British colony after World War I to the immediate present--is brilliantly illuminating in an almost literal sense. It's as if the author had suddenly turned the lights on in the dark cellar of American foreign policy in the Middle East. Highly readable, studded with cogent, often startling quotations, the story is at the same time soberly told, factual and horrifying: but above all, enlightening. I can't recommend it too highly for the many struggling to fathom how America came to the present calamitous role of occupying Iraq against local resistance."
