qIraq The murder and mayhem of this Middle East mosaic are David Mays' motifs in this Mesopotamian masterwork. The writer's microscope moves mercilessly to inspect the human microbes brought to the surface in the time since the invasion of that country in 2003. We meet the ruthless religious fanatic who sees it as his duty to cut the throats of women whose working lives aid the community: the aimless young man who finds hope in suicide for Al Qa'eda: the persecutor of Christians: the cynical warlords manipulating these people in the pursuit of their own power lust. Yet are there no good guys? Are there only microbes in the bog that is Baghdad? No. There is the dogged courage of the U.S. service personnel who believe that their mission is to make good out of evil. There is the ordinary Iraqi, trying to make a living, sometimes surviving, sometimes not, the murderous machinations of those around him. A two-part delineation of the real Iraq, David Mays' book is a necessary primer for those who wish to understand this war-riven country of Heroes -and more.q --Denis Frize, University Professor-U.K., M.A., B.
