Iraq after America

Iraq after America examines the new state, sectarian and secular factions, and political trends that have emerged in Iraq since the US-led invasion of 2003, presenting the various elements in the Iraqi political scene, as well as their interrelations. The book traces the origins of three key trends in recent Iraqi history (authoritarianism, sectarianism, and Islamist resistance) to explain the political and social forces that produced them, particularly during the intense period of civil war between 2003 and 2009, but also up to America’s departure in 2011. Along the way, the author looks at some of the most significant players in the new Iraq, explaining how they have risen to prominence, what they aim to do, and what that means for the United States and others.

Perjury

When the Hiss-Chambers case first burst on the scene in 1948, its main characters and events seemed more appropriate to spy fiction than to American reality. The major historical authority on the case, Perjury was first published in 1978. Now, in its latest edition, Perjury links together the old and new evidence, much of it previously undiscovered or unavailable, bringing the Hiss-Chambers’s amazing story up to the present.
