This academic book, which reads like an extended journal article with documentation in notes at the end of each chapter, proves fascinating in light of the Iraqi war and plunder of Iraq's antiques. 'The Great American Plunder of Persia's Antiquities' provides provocative food for thought about long-term U.S. involvement in the Middle East. * Sir Read Alot Book Review *
