Fuel on the Fire : Oil and Politics in Occupied Iraq Paperback / softback

Description

Revised and updated to cover the withdrawal of troops from Iraq, and the Arab Spring.

The departure of the last US troops from Iraq at the end of 2011 left a broken country and a host of unanswered questions.

What was the war really about? Why and how did the occupation drag on, while most Iraqis, Britons and Americans desperately wanted it to end? And what of oil, which lies at the heart of Iraqi politics?Now in the first full account of the nine-year war and occupation, Greg Muttitt's gripping and far-reaching investigation takes us behind the scenes to answer some of those questions, centred on the taboo subject of what has happened to Iraq's oil.

In light of the Arab revolutions, the war in Libya and renewed threats against Iran, Fuel on the Fire provides a vital guide to the lessons from Iraq.
