Since the fall of Baghdad in April 2003, Zaki Chebah has had unique access to numerous groups within the resistance as well as to leading figures in the tribal groups who define much of Iraqi society. Inside the Resistance describes the methods of the Iraqi resistance movements (there are many), and the extent of the involvement of Al-Qaeda and other foreign fighters. This book also examines how the events of Iraq have affected Syria, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Turkey and Iran. No journalist is better placed to explain the intricacies of the battle over Iraq and to write vividly from personal experience about life on the front lines of Tikirt, Mosul and Fallujah. Using first-hand reportage, interviews with leading figures on all sides of the conflict, and his insight in Arab sensibilities, Zaki Chebah provides an authoritative and gripping insight into life in Iraq and his analysis for its future.
