Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Cold War certainties that had seemed so fixed in the 20th Century were overturned by the war in Iraq. Saddam Hussein's Republican Guards were the battlefield victims of a brutally quick war of shock and awe. No less shocked and awed were some of America's former allies: "old" Europe, large blocks of the UN, and half the G8 nations suddenly found themselves outside the chain of command and influence.

Bush, Blair, and their allies were driven by a new global vision. Their mission, expressed with great moral certainty, has been called imperialist. In fact, it was simply inevitable after 9/11: that terrible event ushered in a new era with new rules. Shawcross shows what the future will hold for Iraq, Israel, and the Middle East, how Western alliances will be changed forever, and demonstrates that the war was the definitive proof that a new era of 21st Century international politics has begun.

Review:

"This is a bantamweight book that is passionately, but not always closely, argued. Yet it is an important book — not so much because of what Shawcross has written as for the fact that he has written it." James Traub, The New York Times Book Review

Book News Annotation:

Shawcross, a former foreign correspondent, analyzes the US's decision to invade Iraq in March 2003, exploring why Britain and other countries followed, why Franco-German protest had to be faced down, and why, ultimately, the invasion was the right thing to do. 5.5x8<">.
Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:
