Anatomy of a Civil War
Nir Rosen has written an excellent piece for the Boston Review that details Iraq's post-invasion descent into civil war. What sets this specific commentary apart from that of so many others is that Rosen witnessed this story unfold firsthand. He traveled from neighborhood to neighborhood, mosque to mosque observing developments in the Sunnia/Shia relationship meeting figures such as Muqtada Al Sadr along the way. A very interesting read.
