Secrets and Lies

UK Publisher: Politico's

A 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 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.
