Description - A New Muslim Order by Nicolas Pelham

Nicolas Pelham explores how America's overthrow of the Baath partyin Iraq, and the failures of Washington's post-invasion regime spawned a Shiite revolution in the heartland of the Arab world. Through first hand accounts from Saddam's rule to that of the post-Bremer rulers, he traces the turning of the tables from a Sunni- to Shia-led state. Pelham recounts how Shia clerics led the largest protests the region had seen since the Iranian Revolution to topple Paul Bremer, America's Shah in Iraq. As Washington struggled to back peddle, Pelham reveals how the Ayatollahs' drive for elections won power for their acolytes to draft the constitution for a utopian Shia state.
