The Reckoning is an account of the forces -- historical, religious, ethnic, and political -- that produced Saddam Husseins dictatorship. Iraq was forged after World War I from the Mesopotamian region of the collapsed Ottoman Empire; its people have never had a national identity or a sense of common purpose. Hussein, ruling by terror, pitted the various ethnic groups, religious interests, and tribes against one another, and in so doing achieved the destruction of Iraqs middle class and civilized society. After he goes, the country could be the site of conflict even more vicious than the Balkan wars. Book jacket.
