Summary
"In this vividly descriptive work, Nicholas Pelham eavesdrops on mullahs and militants, on Presidents and peasants to paint a masterful portrait of the passions and politics behind the Middle East sectarian crisis." "Pelham, a journalist of many years standing in the region, takes the reader on an unforgettable journey through study sessions in Iraq's Shia seminaries, a camel ride in the Jordanian desert and a riot in Gaza City, to show the unravelling of the old Middle East order as it happens, and to make Western readers understand the force with which this unravelling is being felt in the region, where suddenly a new frontline is opening in every town, city and village."--Jacket
