Providing a close-up perspective on what has happened in Iraq since Operation Desert Storm, this book considers the economic devastation of the war and the abortive uprising that followed it. The authors look at how the regime has maintained itself in power, documenting the institutionalized terror and extremely repressive cultural policies imposed by the Ba'ath under Saddam Hussein.
