This book is a systematic analysis of the intractable challenges posed by terrorism, sectarianism, corruption and the transition to democracy in the post-Saddam Hussein era in Iraq, and details how they can be overcome. This book is particularly unique because while there are many books on Iraq, most of them are historical accounts and travelogues. The authors of these works, the overwhelming majority of whom are non-Iraqi, agree that Iraq is in a crisis, albeit their explanations for and analyses of the crisis and prescriptions vary and are of variegated qualities.
