Format: Paperback
The book is written by an academic who, not only has knowledge of the topic but, has even worked in an advisory capacity with the U.S. government; however, he does not just rely on that experience as he also constantly works to provide ample textual evidence for every claim he makes. Moreover, he uses his experience as a scholar and an adviser to critique policies and assertions made about the Middle East, and especially the claim of an "artificial" origin of a three-state Iraq.

I like the book because it is presented with a detailed analysis of the subjects, yet, the author makes these in small one-page sub-sections of each chapter that makes the narrative easier to follow.

The book is great for people who are really busy because it can be read in chunks, or flipped through for specific content.

Writer, Reidar Visser, creates a clear narrative which actually allows for more autonomy with the book which the author constructs so that each section can stand alone, then be reconciled with its fellows.

The book is very convenient, as Visser, connects the reader through time, topic, and politics.

Readers who have a vested interest in both the topic of the United States intervention in Iraq and also the history of Iraq as its own body should definitely read this book!
