Iraq stands on the edge of civil war. As sectarian killings escalate and troops become more deeply entrenched, is there any prospect for an exist strategy? Leading security expert Paul Rogers examines events in Iraq since May 2005 and their impact on other countries, including Afghanistan, Iran, and the wider Middle East.

Bringing together the extensive analysis of the renowned Oxford Research Group, the book charts a tumultuous period in the conflict, including a wider international perspective on the terrorist attacks in London and Sharm al Sheik, and an assessment of how U.S. public opinion has changed as the war drags on.

Tackling events in chronological order, Rogers offers a clear and compelling account of an invasion that was meant to take a matter of weeks and that now threatens to engulf an entire region for many years to come.

Paul Rogers is Professor Peace Studies at Bradford University. He is the author of twenty-one books, including A War Too Far and Losing Control. He is a frequent broadcaster on international security issues on the BBC, CNN, and other networks.
