Strand Books on Iraq in Transition

Strand Bookstore is a major bookseller located in New York City. Operating there since 1927, they boast "18 miles of books" at their Broadway and 12th location, with kiosks also in Central Park. Hailed by George Will, this operation has been independently owned by the Bass family since its founding. They offer this review of Iraq in Transition:

"In this remarkably comprehensive chronicle of the recent history of Iraq Marine officer and scholar Peter J. Munson offers readers a glimpse at the country from an insider's point of view."Iraq in Transition" takes a fully objective stance as it considers not only what has been written and reported on by residents of the West, but also pays a close consideration to the Arabic literature produced throughout the fallen dictatorship and earliest attempts at democracy. Brimming with historical information, which gives the reader a clear context in which to consider the current situations at play, this book offers insight and hope for this mending nation."
