Combining a history of Iraq and its dominant sects with an acute awareness of the political machinations fomenting worldwide, this keen military analysis offers a practical exit strategy for U.S. armed forces in Iraq—partitioning, a unique strategy that has been successful in other chaotic political situations.


"[Argues] that a partition plan is the least-worst approach to a post-occupation Iraq . . . Mr. Eland acknowledges that partition will not be easy, and . . . he offers 15 guidelines for those seeking a confederation (modeled after the European Union)."  —Orange County Register
