Throughout history, Middle Eastern nations have wrested power from one another through contests of religious doctrine and piety, which have largely played out within the boundaries of modern-day Iraq. Today, the hotbed of religious and imperial wars is once again ablaze following the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. But to understand the sources and potential solutions for Iraq's current sectarian war, world leaders must look beyond the veil of theocracy to find the regional power struggle that has been millennia in the making. This book explains how politics and not religion lies at the core of a conflict that transcends generations and threatens to escalate into a full-scale regional war.
