Muqtada Al-Sadr and the Fall of Iraq Summary


Muqtada Al-Sadr and the Fall of Iraq by Patrick Cockburn

This is the first book about Muqtada al Sadr, the most important political figure in post-occupation Iraq. Muqtada has become the kingmaker of Iraq and a force that is indispensable to any Iraqi government: the Mehdi Army, his devoted militia, now rules half of Baghdad. Far from being the 'firebrand cleric' portrayed in the western media, he is an astute and experienced politician who struggles to lead an anarchic mass movement that he only half controls. In a compelling narrative, award-winning war correspondent Patrick Cockburn charts the rise of Muqtada, and has written an essential book for our understanding of Iraq's future. Cockburn has reported from Iraq since 1977, often at great personal risk, and "Muqtada al Sadr and the Fall of Iraq" combines first hand accounts of his investigations with vivid and dismaying descriptions of the civil war that is tearing the country apart.
