Controversial and fresh account of the politics, personalities and intrigues involved in the lead up to America's dramatic intervention in Iraq The Anglo-American invasion of Iraq is a turning point in history, and is ushering in a new era in world politics in which centrifugal forces in the Middle East are being unleashed and American global hegemony may take a down-turn in this region. Journalist and historian Dilip Hiro's epic Secrets and Lies describes in lucid detail the causes and course of the invasion in a gripping military and historical history that presents the conflict in Iraq in a new light. He illuminates the role of the neoconservatives in the Bush White House and dissects Bush's leadership, showing how his own personal relationship with God has been a driving force behind the war. Laying bare the deliberate misinterpretations, fabrications and bullying exercised by the US and UK administrations, Secrets and Lies also goes on to examine the dynamics of power in post-war Iraq, where intervention appears to be driving the religious Shia majority towards "Axis of Evil" Iran.
