Now in paperback, this is the first major assessment of Britain's role in creating the instability that still reigns in the middle-east. Using primary and secondary sources, Reid charts the lines in the sand that mark the uncertain beginnings of the region, the discovery of oil and the political wrangling that would forever tear the region apart.
